In my best Brando voice, "The horror, the horror."

What does it mean when your fetus's ultrasound scan at 34 weeks bears a remarkable resemblance to a noseless Jack Nicholson as The Joker? Or Tim Burton's Jack Skellington from The Nightmare Before Christmas? And how about if she looks like one of the melting people at the end of Raiders, when the lid to the Lost Ark of the Covenant is oh-so-unwisely removed?

Do as the good man says, Marion, and close your eyes.

If it makes you feel any better, at about 32 weeks, my little guy strongly resembled someone who had horrendous facial burns and had lost his nose, ears, and eyelids.... Of course everyone said "OH HOW CUTE" and I thought "OH MY GOD MY CHILD IS A MONSTER!!!!" However, 8 weeks later he was born adorable as can be, with nose, lips, ears, and eyelids intact :)

I thought mine looked like a cubist painting with his nose on the side of his face and his eyes all uneven and his mouth crooked! He turned out to be quite symmetrical though.

i didn't want the tech to do a "face shot" when we had our u/s. I had no need to see my baby's skull, but she did, and now i have a cute picture of her facial bones that i never want to look at

It might mean that that kid's got a future in Hollywood. Either way, I know it's a bright one.

heh Mellie....good point! Our 8 year old, Mini-Me, informed me the other night that his teacher (who is about 30 weeks pg) was going for a 'sound check' on Thursday. Fits in with the Hollywood theme.
