my son who is a twin has cp and several other conditions and we found out at 3 months that he has it. we to thought that he was normal until we seen that his brother wasn't doing the same acions that he was, i'm sorry to say it but that sounds exactly what my son was doing and if your daughter does have cp then you can work through it. it's not as terrible as it sounds according t the people that i have talked with and they say that a child with a mild case of cp can lead a normal life unfortuantly my son will never be able to because of his other medical problems, people tell me that you need to find support groups and talk to people with the same conditions but there seems to not be any in my area so if you want to talk feel free to write me and i'll tell you all that i know also if you know any information please share it with me also!:) have a good day~sophie : I am a 19 year old mom of a two month old baby girl. Until today i was convinced my girl was perfectly healthy. Her grandmother had mentioned the possibility of cp with her because she was unusually stiff at her age. Apparnetly she had mentioned this to her doctor and he said that it could b a sign of cp. I read stacy"s letter which discusses the fact that her baby, Ashliegh was "stiff and her hands and legs were constantly moving." This sounds exactly like my little angel and it scares me. Also, everyone seems to be discussing the pregnancy and if there were any complications. I was 2 weeks overdue and had contractions for 6 days before the doctor finally induced me. She was born without any further complications 6 hours later. I was just wondering if any parents of children with cp could tell me if these are the kind of complications i should b concerned about.
