Tall husbands/boyfriends

I am a very petite girl coming in at 4'11 100 lbs and my boyfriend is 6'4. Anybody else in a similar situation? If you already have little ones, how big were they?

    I'm taller than you (5'6") and my SO is 6'2".. not only to we have height from him but my dad is over 6'2" and so was my grandfather on my mom's side... so I'm thinking baby will be pretty tall as well!

    I'm 5'6 and hubby is 6'7. He also weighed 14lbs when he was born! Yikes!! So I expected our DD to be a beast, but she was a lovely 8lbs 12oz. She's now 1 and off the charts for height. It looks like I'm destined to be that short mom with the tall family!!

    I'm 5'5 and my husband is 6'8. My entire family is also tall (I am by far the shortest one) so we anticipate a tall kid!

    I am 5'1 and my DH is 6'8 so it will be interesting to see how our kid turns out (:

    I'm 5'0 and my husband is 6'3.  We have a 3 yr old girl and she is very tall for her age now, but she only grew to the room she had (partly why she was 3 weeks early ;) )

    My mother was like 5'6 and my father is 6'4, and I turned out to be between 6'1"/ 6'2". (I was born at 8lbs3oz) My height was off the charts for years and my body developed much sooner then other children my age. My bf and I are both tall soo I know that our child will be a giant. Lol. Good luck to you moms and mothers to be:)

    I'm just under 5' 8 and hubby is 6' 3. Our two y/o is now on the high end of the charts, but he started at 8 lbs and 21.25 in... Not the smallest baby, but tall parents aren't a guaranteed delivery nightmare, either ;)

    You never know what's gonna happen. I'm 5ft6 and my husband is about 5ft10/11ish. My family and brothers are all about 6ft2.
    My son took after my family so far and was 21 1/2 when born and has been in 90something percentile in height since.
    Maybe you will have an average height child. Lol

    I'm 5'3 and my DH is 6'3.  My kids were not huge.  DS1 was 8lbs 8oz, DS2 was 7lbs 7oz (but 4 weeks early, so he would have been a monster if he had gone to his due date), and DD was my peanut at only 7lbs.  My boys grew quickly once they were out, but thankfully they didn't start off that way ;-)  My DD is still small, though.  She takes after her momma.

    Married to J since 5/05, Mommy to T (10/08), L (08/10) and C (02/13) who was born at home.

    I'm 5'6" and DH is 6'2". Our first was 7lbs and 20inches long. He's average on the charts now but my husband was as well as a child. Our family is very mixed heights so I'm not sure what we'll get this time around. I'm assuming around the same size.

    @sthiggins We are the same size! But I have gained a few pounds so now I am about 105.  My mom keeps picking at me saying I am going to have a huge girl like my husband and then a small petite boy like me. Lol I am excited to see what our kids look like! Good Luck :)
