Does anyone have any babes with a port wine birthmark or similar one? DD has one (that's what the docs think it is, at least) that covers her entire left leg and up to her butt. The birthmark doesn't concern me but the fact the fact that the leg that has the birthmark on it is slightly less chubby than the other, about an inch less all around. It's the same length, just a bit smaller. We've seen a few docs and most of them say it'll go away on its own except for one who said we should get an ultrasound to make sure everything is okay internally. No one seems to be able to tell us why the one leg is slightly smaller, they seem to have no idea. Before I go ahead and give her an ultrasound, I am doing some research and thought I'd ask everyone here what your thoughts are.

Do any of you have experiences with this?
