Peyton is 2 months old! Last month we had a lot going on with the potential “pyloric stenosis” diagnoses. I’m happy to say that she has gotten MUCH better and she hasn’t been vomiting/spitting up nearly as much as she used to! She still has some pretty significant reflux but being on Zantac has helped her a lot. It still takes a good amount of time to be able to lay her down flat after eating but that has gotten a tad bit better too 🙂
As most of you know, Peyton was in the breech position. It is standard for breech babies to have hip ultrasounds done at around 6 weeks. Soooo we had that done. There was no dislocation or subluxation (partial dislocation) of her hips. Her “alpha” angles were a bit off but not by much. The hormone “relaxin” that women have during pregnancy can also have an effect on the baby. Relaxin loosens the muscles, ligaments, and joints so that probably didn’t help my little breech baby 😛 Her doctor is confident that her hips will resolve on their own. We will be getting a follow up ultrasound on her hips next week. Fingers crossed for improvement!
Peyton’s appointment went well! Her doctor is extremely pleased with her growth. It’s amazing how much she has changed in 2 short months. When we left the hospital, Peyton was 5 lbs 3 oz. She has gained almost 4 pounds since then. Knowing that I have been her complete source of food and nourishment, makes me very proud 🙂 She’s growing so fast! Her next doctor’s appointment is in 2 months but I will be posting another update before then 🙂
