Just to catch you ladies up, I had some weird, rhythmic back pains over the weekend. At first I wasn't worried but later read that it is, or could be, a sign of preterm labor. I called my doctors office but the head nurse was gone until today. She called me today and I told her about the back pains and also that my pelvic bone feels like it is stretched open. It hurts to walk! On top of that I have been lifting heavy stuff (not anymore, but I have been up until a week ago) and that I have noticed a pain on the right side of my belly button. It feels internal like a bruise but there are no marks on my skin and some days it hurts so bad I can barely bend over. I told her I wasn't sure what exactly was causing the stomach pain but I thought maybe it was my stomach muscles being stretched?

I told her about my anxieties, that I have a feeling that I can't shake and am worried this baby is going to be born early. I said because of all this could she please schedule me for an ultrasound? I reminded her that they were never able to get all Toren's face measurements done and I just really needed an u/s for my peace of mind.

I was so worried she would say no because they have been so stingy with ultrasounds!! But she said "Of course, I will get your ultrasound scheduled for as soon as possible. Is tomorrow at 9am okay?" Then she told me how I should drink TONS of water and lay on my left side if I get any weird rhythmic pains in the future.

So I go in tomorrow at 9am, yay! I'm of course a little nervous that they are going to find something concerning, but DH is able to go with me if he makes up the time he missed on Saturday. I'm really glad he will be there with me. It's too scary to go to those kind of appointments alone. I will let you ladies know what happens and hopefully I will have a few pictures to share tomorrow.

I posted on facebook about this but just wanted to say again Good Luck and I'm so happy that they are giving you an ultrasound. Actually I'm surprised that they didn't want you to come back in to get all his face measurements. I know when I had my first anatomy scan they had a hard time seeing his kidneys, his heart and his face because he was upside down and kept trying to hide. So I went back in and they saw his kidneys and face but couldn't see his heart. I just wonder why they didn't want to get all the measurments. Let us know how it goes.

Thank you ladies. 1 more hour until my appointment. I will let y'all know how it goes.

I think since the facial measurements aren't life threatening to the baby if something were wrong, my doctor didn't really want to worry with it. Maybe I'm wrong.
