Honestly my ob thought by how quick the hb was found and the feel of my uterus I MUST have been 3-4 weeks ahead of what I thought. Ha the ultrasound and was only measuring 5 days ahead. This is my 4 so your uterus just might have prepped out ahead and faster.

I thought my due date was the first week of May. So I should be at about the same point as you.

I'm hoping that is it.

Re: Enlarged Uterus

I was going to say the same thing as well - it could just be that your uterus stretched out and got bigger faster this time around. There are so many different reasons it could be feeling larger, and most really aren't scary or bad!

yikes!

when I was growing up, all the after-school specials had emergency appendectimies on them, so I'm always analyzing 'is that pain in my left side????' The 80's made them seem super common.

I hope he's feeling better and she gets her appt soon.

Re: Enlarged Uterus

My oldest did have an appendectomy last night. We were really lucky that he communicated well with us and that we trusted our gut. It was fortunate that my ultrasound appointment was right next to the hospital, so my MIL sat with him so I could get it taken care of.

We found out that there was a twin that stopped developing. The baby that is alive is right on for my dates though.
