Rqotd - 5/16

How tall are you? How tall is your S/O? How tall do you think your LO(s) are going to be?

I'm 5'8". DH is 6'. I'm guess DS is going to be at least 5'8" which is a good height for anybody. Smile

I'm 5'9" and DF is roughly the same height... Both of my girls were kinda stumpy Lol when they were born, both under 20inches. Brooke it just about 40inches now, no idea what the coverts to in feet, but she seems to be about average, maybe alittle under. And Sophie is a giraffee!!! Lol I do think both girls are going to tall; but I think Sophie's gonna be taller...

I'm 5'7" and DH is about 5'10". I think DS will be at least average height if not tall, as the men on my Dad's side of the family are very very tall. My grandfather was 6'4" and apparently my greatgrandfather was like 6'7". Simon is pretty tall now, in the 90th percentile and has really big feet. So I guess we'll see.

Ok, so I guess I'm a midget. I'm 5'4" and DH is roughly 5'10". We're both the tallest in our families in at least the most recent generations. Teagan will probably be between 5'2" (like both her grandmothers, all 4 four of her great-grandmothers, and 1 aunt) and 5'4" (like me and her other aunt). I was always the shortest girl in class throughout elementary school. She's going to be tiny.

I'm 5'6"ish and DH is 6'2".

DS is going to every bit as tall as DH, he's always been off the growth chart with height.

Clara is going to be smaller like me, probably around 5'6".

DD1 is already 5'9" at 12 years old. That girl is going to be really tall, probably around 6', but her dad is 6'6".

I'm 5'9 DH is 6'2. Both of our families are tall. (Well not DH's mum's side, they are all midgets :lol:) Both boys are tall. According to DS1's chart from his 2 year check he's going to be 6'2 and I'd imagine Tobey will be about the same as both of them are on the 90th for height

OK...I got this from a website.

To calculate your son's genetic potential, take Mom's height plus 5 inches and add Dad's height. Now average the two. For example, if Dad is 5' 10" and Mom is 5' 3" you would take 5' 10" and 5' 3" plus 5" (or 5' 8") and divide that answer by two. The average of 5' 10" and 5' 8" is 5' 9". That is your son's genetic potential.


To calculate your daughter's genetic potential, take Dad's height minus 5 inches and add Mom's height. Now average the two. For example, if Dad is 6' and Mom is 5' 2" you would take 6' minus 5" (or 5' 7") plus 5' 2" and divide that answer in half. The average of 5' 7" and 5' 2" is 5' 4½ inches. This would be your daughter's genetic potential.

I'm 5'5, DH is 6'3. So according to this, the girls should both be 5'7 - 5'8. They are both on the high end of the growth charts. Miranda is currently over 100% and is always mistaken for a 5yo. We will see. I hope they are both taller than me. Smile

BTW - Jackie....for some reason I pictured you as shorter. *I have no idea why* lol

I agree! Biggrin I'm 5'8" too! And my ex is 6'. According to Laurene's info, Luke will be about 6' or 6'1", my DD will be about 5'7". My ped also used Lily's 2 yr height info and calculated that she will be about 5'7" when she grows up, so we'll see how accurate that is. She is pretty tall now for her age.

Well this didnt work out for me. My dad is 5'8" (the shorty in his family) and my mom is 5'2", and I'm 5'7". But I bet that is a pretty good indicator of height for most. I pretty much works for my sisters' heights.

While interesting and probably pretty accurate, this is by no means a measure of one's "genetic potential." Sorry, that just erked the geneticist in me Wink

I've also pictured Jackie to be shorter. I thought you were a midget like me!

So I seem short online? Lol

Funny enough I thought I was 5'7" up until a few years ago. While working childcare in Vegas, the kids had a project to measure random things including me. I kept telling them all that they were wrong, but when all 10 groups claimed I was 5'8" I had to admit maybe I was wrong! lol. (I was.)

I'm about 5'6" and hubby is about 6". I think Ronin will be fairly tall, even though he is only 25th for length right now, hubby was really short until about age 12/13 then shot up and I think Ronin will be the same.
