We decided to treat ourselves and go to a private clinic to have a 3D (or 4d as they call it?) ultrasound scan of our baby to have a sneak peek and get some pictures and video of our upcoming bundle of joy! We confirmed it is a little girl and is due on August 13th.
Many people have asked if our baby will be ‘average height”. The short answer (excuse the pun) is yes. My condition, Diastrophic Dwarifsm is not hereditary and many people find it surprising to learn that my all my family including sisters are average height. The more common type of Dwarfism, Achondroplasia is hereditary which many people including doctors mistake my condition for. Interesting fact: there are over 200 recognised types of Dwarfism!
