    Hi everyone!
    Had our 2 week check up today and everything is going great!!
    They said her hips are now at 45 and 47... but what does that mean???? I don't understand what number they should be at?
    Anyway I'm thinking its good because they were extremely happy!
    I have another appointment in 4 weeks and they will do another ultra-sound and if everything is still good they will measure her for a new kind of brace.
    So she is going to be in the pavlik harness for a total of 8 weeks and than the other harness for a minimum of 6. So hopefully if all goes to plan by the time she is 6 months old she will be completely harness free
    Although at the moment she is very sad, I think all the poking and prodding has really upset her

    Hi Mrs Molly Coddle

    I have saved a pic of Darcy in her harness on my profile, however I still could not view your pics

    Darcy did great at the specialist yesterday - her hip is developing really well and she should be out of the harness in 3 weeks. I am so happy! It was great getting the second opinion - so much more information and reassurance. They also adjusted the harness which is great.

    I was also told I could take Darcy out of her harness for a bath and a stretch. I was so happy that I cried when I saw my little nudie girl! Her legs and feet looked a little odd though - is this normal after being in the harness for 3 weeks? Her feet and legs stayed splayed. I guess this makes sense?

    Also, she screamed so badly when it was time to put her harness back on and didn't sleep as well. Now I'm not sure if it is worth taking her harness off as she is so used to it. Did anyone else experience this? Did it get better after a few days of putting the harness back? I want to do what is best for my little angel!

    Thanks so much, Nikki xx

    curly - That's wonderful! I believe the numbers refer to percentage coverage, or some angle? Not sure which one sorry, but our numbers started off way out of the ordinary, then after the chiro, they were both 50 and the sonographer and the hospital were thrilled as that is well within the 'normal range'! So your little one's measurements are quite similar which I would think is fantastic? I hope she has settled, poor chicken. I have everything crossed for the next ultrasound!!



    Nikki - What a pain about the piccies, but I uploade them to a flickr album so hopefully this works! http://www.flickr.com/photos/76209339@N06/
    We had the same experience with the harness. With her last stint in it, we were allowed to let her legs out for a wash a couple of times a week, and she absolutely haaated us putting it back on She screamed and screamed I'm sorry to say that it did not get better and it broke my heart doing it, but all I can say is keep your eye on the light at the end of that tunnel and image being able to throw the damn thing away one day soon It was still the best thing for her IMO and I cherished that hour we got every few days and always took lots of photos, and vids, and basically just smothered her with love for that time. My DD didn't hold the splayed position (she STRETCHED!) but I imagine it would be quite normal as that is what Darcy is used to. I found that once the harness was removed totally, because DD had been used to leaning backwards to counter the harness pulling her forwards, she had some probs with her posture and always had her arms back like a downward skier! The chiropractor got rid of that problem, so if you find she is keeping them splayed after or doesn't seem quite right, maybe see a chiro or osteopath even? Or even a physio?
    Just off to look at her photos

    fichicken - great that your DD loves the hydro!

    Hey Mrs Molly Coddle!

    So happy I could finally see your pics - your little DD is absolutely divine!! It's so good to see her up and about, it makes all of this worthwhile!

    I've posted some more pics of my little Darcy now I know it works

    I will definitely be asking the specialist about her splayed legs and feet - hopefully some exercises will work.

    19 sleeps to go - so excited!

    Nikki!
    This is my third attempt tonight at trying to reply here! Bubhub keeps losing my posts. Ah!
    =thank you for sharing the lovely photos of your gorgeous DD She is such a sweetheart. And thank you for your kind comments on our photos, as well.

    We were given a few exercises to do after the harness came off, eg. massaging her wee bottom to help relieve some of the tension that had developed in those muscles, and they were so simple and effective. I'm sure your specialist will be able to help you! It's amazing what can be done. And any excuse to give her lots of cuddles and massages, hey??

    Hope that time flies for you guys. I have everything crossed
