wrecked my car...had a real scare

hello ladies,
good and bad news to report. had to stay 24 hrs in l & d because i wrecked my car pretty good. woke up yesterday morning to go get fitted for a maternity belt...on the way back i hydroplaned into a guardrail, damaging my jeep pretty good. (that is the bad).

good to report, no bad injuries, i'm banged up really good...but after my 24 hr stay at l & d...i've only effaced 10% more from a couple a days ago...no dilation...just 70% effaced. but the silver linining in all of this is my little man is up to 5lbs 9 ozs and survived that impact very well.

i am glad to be home!

we are fine....but good lord i have never felt this sore in my life. it was scary being taken in ambulance, but was taking no precautions. luckily i had my accident in a very good neighborhood, and as soon as i stepped out of the jeep and people saw the tummy i had people to my aid. i am still mad, but relieved my airbag DIDNT deploy...makes me a little paranoid thinking about it. hated the stay in l & d but so glad i didnt efface any overnight. i go back tommorow for a check up with my ob. i'll keep ya'll updated it if efface or dilate any. (have to go back for a uti...that plus car accident soreness, not fun.) i had several REAL contractions, they were able to stop em with iv fluid, but you all are a hundred percent right...real contractions are no joke. i begged through one of em to let me up and walk around, but compromised on an ice pack on my back.

it was so cool that when i was in trauma care getting prodded and probed my regular ob popped in to check on me. apparently she had called dh to schedule my next appointment, and he told her i was en route there. it was very comforting to see my regular doc through all that craziness.

crazy to believe my baby is at 5 lbs 9 oz. i am a little speculative on this from the u/s but he's getting bigger:)

Be careful! I almost threw in a "young lady" so you know I'm concerned! Smile I'm really glad you and baby are ok. Maybe get a chauffeur for a while, eh? Seriously, take it easy.
