Today we went to Luke's 2 month appointment. Tomorrow, Tuesday he will be nine weeks. Where is the time going??? Anyway back to the doctors appointment. Everything went very well. He weighed 11.5 lbs. and was 22.5 inches long. He is in the 40th percentile for his weight and 33rd percentile for his length. We have come such a long way because last appointment he was in the 7th percentile in his weight and 9th percentile in his length.
He received 3 shots today and did so well, he only cried a little. What a tough little guy (he takes after his mom on that). Today the doctor did not hear his heart murmur, YEA!!! Looks like that is healing on it's own.
Luke is a great baby, but at times he screams for an hour to two hours at a time and you can not get him settled. As I was telling the doctor about it she started describing what he did to a "T". She asked if he got stiff and arched his back and head, I said YES. Then she said does he make funny noises that sounds like he is having trouble breathing and again I said YES. She then proceeded to say she thinks he might have acid reflux. The doctor said 80-90% of babies have it but they only treat about 8-10%. The doctor prescribed him a prescription for it that he takes twice a day. We are hoping this helps. We go back to the doctor in a month to see if this is working. I will try and keep you posted to see if it gets better.
Carter is 8!
