...That is what I wanted to tell the Dr. after we got the results from Sweet Pea's lab work.
Yes, last week was pure hell. After her 6 month well-baby check up he was a little concerned about her not gaining weight. So he wanted to monitor her every 2 months...I was okay with that. We went in June and things were good, she went from weighing 13 lbs. 9 0z @ 6 months to weighing 15 lbs @ 8 months. Last Tuesday (Aug 12 th) she weighed in at 15 lbs. 14 oz. She only gained 14 oz in 2 months!! I was shocked! She eats like a fat girl! I knew then that we were in for it! So the Dr. wanted to do some blood work and a urine analysis to check for kidney function, abnormalities in her digestive system etc. Getting the blood taken alone was HORRIBLE! I cried, she cried and Nolan was worried I was going to lose it at any moment. Seriously! They sent us home with a little pee bag and a cup and wished us good luck! We needed it! After a couple hours of wearing this pee bag she finally went, but the stickiness (is that a word?) had worn off and she went in her diaper! There were a couple of drops in the bag...Nolan squeezed them out into the cup. We hoped and prayed that it would be good enough!
Fast Forward to yesterday- The nurse from the Dr.'s office FINALLY called me and said that the blood work came back normal, but that they wanted another urine analysis. OH Boy! Because her urine was contaminated! It's pee! But we could come into the office at our convince and get the pee bag and the cup and come home! Thank You!
All this just re-assured me that I am a good mom and that my daughter maybe a little petite, but I am ok with that! I hope it lasts forever! I never got to be the petite girl in school, I was the AMAZON GIRL that was on the back row for class pictures with all the boys!
I hope you stay petite forever! I am jealous of you in a mother/daughter kind of way!
