I wanted to share our story with you about our beautiful baby girl.
I thought everything was perfectly fine. We went to the doctor for her 4 month shots and the doc felt her hips and made a face. She said she can hear something popping. i started getting worried, i thought everything was ok. She told me to make an appointment ASAP with a specialist so they can do a ultrasound.( she is too young for a xray, they do those after the baby is 6 months).
So we went and did that. Of course the nurse who did the ultrasound couldn’t tell me anything, she said i will hear from my doctor tomorrow. Tomorrow felt like forever.
Anyways, the doctor called and said both of her hips are mildly dislocated. BOTH?! That Friday i had to go back to the specialist to get a harness for her. The specialist told me it’s only her left hip and it is pretty bad. I am going to believe the specialist obviously. So… I freaked out. I felt like it was the end of the world. We just got JoJo to sleep through the night. The 1st few days were a complete nightmare, i am not going to sugarcoat it for you. BUT…its been a week and it is getting better each day.
She still has not slept through the night since her harness but she only wakes up just once throughout the night. She is very uncomfortable. She wakes herself up. Heard that was normally. We go every week for a checkup which is $ 50 co-pay :(. But the good news of the story is at least they caught it in time, where she will only need a harness and no surgery.( if all goes well)
Just relax and I’m sure you are taking worse then your baby is. And everything happens for a reason.
