28 week OB appointment

I had my 28 week appointment with my OB Dr. Seale on Tuesday morning in Bentonville.  The girls were at school, so Chris met me there.  I got there early, and got called right back!  Such a different experience than when we go to Johnson!   I told her I've been having extremely bad back pain, and have been seeing my chiropractor regularly, but that it gets really bad by the end of the night.  She wrote me a prescription for a muscle relaxer - Flexeril.  She listened to Drew's heartbeat first...150 bpm.  Then I was telling her that I have been having Braxton Hicks contractions pretty regularly for the past week, sometimes more than 4 an hour, so she offered to go ahead and check me.  She said no signs of dilation or baby.  She then measures my tummy, and says I'm measuring 4 weeks ahead - 32 weeks!!! She says instead of seeing me in 4 weeks, she wants to see me in a week for an ultrasound!   Wow!  She said that could definitely be the reason by back was hurting.   The soonest they could get me in for an ultrasound with an appointment afterwards to see her was Thursday afternoon.   Chris & I walked over to Taziki's for lunch.  I was a little shook up to hear I was measuring 4 weeks ahead of schedule.  I wasn't sure what it meant...  Did he have a growth spurt since my last appointment, when I was measuring on track?  He was only 4 days ahead at our ultrasound at 20 weeks.  Would we have to schedule my c-section earlier???   Will get some answers next Thursday, then we will schedule my c-section date at the end of November.

28 weeks, 3 days on Halloween
