It is a Hip Thing

Cheesy title I know but it cracked me up. Masyn went yesterday for her ultrasound on her hips. Because she was in the Frank Breech position for more than half of the pregnancy, there was a chance that she could have developed hip dysplasia. It is routine for the pediatricians here to test for that at 6 weeks in the event there was dysplasia, then a brace would be worn before the baby becomes too mobile.

I am happy to report that Masyn's little hips are perfectly normal and that she did fabulous throughout the ultrasound. She even went so far to impress the pediatrician who commented in her 10 years of doing this, she had never had a baby who was so willing to be malleable. Masyn just lied there and let us put her in whatever position needed; even if it was uncomfortable. When so, she would whimper, but didn't fight the position. Instead of taking the routine 1+ hours, we were finished in 15 minutes.

On a side note, my baby is 6 weeks old today. Where has the time gone? It seems just like yesterday that I was going to go in for the ECV. This is the only part that I hate about parenthood; time. It seems like you have such little time with your children and them being babies. For me anyways, I feel that I don't have enough time to enjoy and savour each moment with my children. I think that I am going to lobby for longer days and longer years, that way I will get my fill of my children without feeling cheated by time. Anyone else in on board for that?

Wow the time has flown!

My five year old NEVER wanted to be a baby. He was so happy when he could walk around and talk and tell us what he wanted, it was like he was an ancient little old man stuck in a baby's body, ha ha.

I'm so glad to hear everything's ok, hip-wise!
