3D/4D Ultrasound

Tuesday night we already had an appointment at 6:15pm at Babyface & More in Bentonville to get a 3D/4D ultrasound!  I was happy to get a chance to see my little guy after the news we had gotten earlier in the day

  I started making dinner around 3:30 (lasagna), so it would be ready in time for us to eat before leaving!  Drew was super active on our drive there.... it was on Walton, almost to Bella Vista.   But then he was barely moving once we got there!  My parents met us there.  I filled out some paperwork, then we were able to go into the room to start.  My bladder was really full, and he was breach - sideways with his face towards me with his hands over his face, so she had me go to the restroom to empty my bladder, then we tried again.  I had Chris give me a few drinks of Coke and a couple starbursts.  This made him start moving again, but his hands and the cord were still in the way.  She was able to freeze the picture and cut out the cord, so we got a couple okay pictures.   We scheduled a time to come back next week to see if he cooperates better! 

My baby boy!!!  How sweet are his lips??

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.
