    had our 7-month check yesterday, HV said not 2 worry bout this but cant help it.

    she took millie's tights and nappy off, and pulled her legs straight, and checked the creases in the fat on her inner thighs.

    one was higher than the other, which CAN indicate hip problems :(
    altho she said its USUALLY nothing.

    at docs 2mro, but scared! who's been 2 docs and been told its fine? (or not! :( )

    Hey hun, look on the bright side at least your HV told you not to worry, mine told me to make an apontment ASAP, really worried me

    I took Jack to the doctors and he looked at me like i was mad for making the appointment, when i explained what the HV had said he just rolled his eyes and said it was nothing to worry about and that he had seen a few people that week being referred from that HV and he was going to have words as it was normal in all the babies he had seen

    Sorry for essay but hope that makes you feel batter that there will be nothing to worry about

    Evie had this picked up on a check when she was only a few days old, we ended up being referred for a hip scan when she was about 10 weeks old. Its a bit daunting but TBH I was just glad they were looking out for her. The scan ended up showing nothing was wrong.

    I wouldn't worry (easy for me to say!) its quite a crude test anyway and it seems it really is usually nothing :D
