My 13 month old daughter will twist her legs together and squeeze them together VERY tightly. She has done this ever since I can remember. She will also take a breath and then hold it for a couple of seconds in between breaths like she is in pain. She has always cried a lot and everytime I have taken her to the doctor, I have just been told that babies cry. Her development seems pretty normal, no more than a month or two behind what I would expect. She tries to walk and will take a few steps on her own, but drags her feet. Especsially her left that turns outward quite a bit.
I also had a blood clot behind my placenta that I was never told about. The only reason I know about it is because it was in my medical papers from delivery "~800 ml blood clot delivered behind placenta." That's probably equivilant to 4 baseballs. I am wondering if that had any effect on her. I also had to hold her in while she was ready to come out so that the doctor could put on his cover-up.
Now I have an appointment with a neurologist, but I am afraid that I will once again be told there is nothing wrong with her when I know there is. Does anyone have a child with similar problems?
