Went well! He is now 11lb 1oz. He's in the 20-25th percentile for height and weight, so I guess I have another little one on my hands. His head is bigger than that, though, lol. My poor kids and their big heads.
We skipped the vaxes and the ped wasn't happy about it but she wasn't mean or rude, either. However I'm pretty sure if we continue to skip them she isn't going to keep seeing us. She said she hasn't discharged a patient over not vaxing yet, but that she really isn't comfortable with a patient not vaxing at all. So, we'll see. I honestly probably won't go back for awhile, I don't see the need for visits every couple of months if baby isn't sick and is growing well.
Anyway, glad that's over and done with and all is well. It was a crazy morning though, my 4 year old left the power door open in the van yesterday and it rained all in the van, plus it ran the battery down so we had to jump it this morning and we were late to our dr. appt, then that same 4 year old threw a huge sobbing fit because she didn't get to go back in the little room with me and Lincoln, then she had her anxiety issues over saying goodbye to everyone but I managed to defuse that (yay!) and she got into her carseat on her own which is HUGE progress. Got them some breakfast on the way back and came home to find an exploded can of diet coke in the freezer, whoops, lol. I can tell that my hormones are equaling back out because none of this really fazed me and I didn't get totally bent out of shape. Yay for feeling normal again! Now if only the extreme body aches and joint pain would go away, ugh.
Sounds like an adventure! How big was Lincolns head, if you don't mind me asking? We had the same issue with Tori and she eventually had to go get a CT scan to see if she had water on the brain because her head was measuring "off the charts". She was fine though and eventually she "grew into" her big head. Eli's head is huge too, so we are following the same road. I say it's because of their big brains full of smarts
Karen I'll look on the papers and see if they wrote it down, cause I totally wasn't paying attention to the actual measurements, lol. I just remember the ped commenting that his head is large but that it's nothing to worry about. I'm not worried either because big heads run in both sides of our family, lol. Kian has a huge head. She also said that Lincoln's head might appear larger because of the flat spot in the back making the side/front bulge a little.
