This was a big week for Hunter: He was circumcised on Thursday, and he had a hip ultrasound today. Everything went well on both accounts. The circumcision was quite traumatic, both for Hunter and Mom & Dad. It seemed as though he was in excruciating pain - except that he quit crying the moment we gave him some sugar water. And, he only cried when the sugar water was gone. All I can say is thank God I don't remember my circumcision! And, thank God, he won't remember his! (I know, I know. TMI!) As for the hip ultrasound, our pediatrician recommended it due to the fact that Hunter was in a breach position at birth. The procedure, which was over in less than 15 minutes, looks at the hip joints to make sure the sockets formed correctly. If a fetus spends too much time in a breach position (folded so that their feet are up by their head), the hip joint can form a weak socket for the head of the femur. In Hunter's case, everything looked good - just like the rest of him!
