I just wanted to let you know that my car was hit by a drunk driver last night. I was close to my home at a stop sign and a yellow hummer crashed into me then sped off. The impact caused me to do a full body whiplash. My airbags did not deploy, so my head, chest and belly hit the steering wheel, then my seat collasped to a horizontal position and I fell on my back that way.
Five cars passed me by before anyone came to help me. When they saw I was pregnant, more people became involved. I was taken to a level one trauma center....that was an overwhelming experience. About 15 people were in the ER waiting on me and everyone was pulling, poking, taking clothes off, talking to me at the same time.... They then sent me to L&D.
Baby Devin is perfectly fine. He is healthy and was unaffected. I, on the other hand am in immense pain. My back especially. Tomorrow, I go in to see my peri who will make sure baby Devin is okay. He is concerned about me...and my back injury...on top of my asthma. He wants to induce....in a couple days.
What's worse about all of this...yesterday was my 12 year old son's birthday. I am an emotional wreck. My car is totalled. Luckily, my in-laws live close and is going to help me with getting to the hospital to deliver.
I'm just so grateful to be alive and that no one else was in the car with me. They caught the driver and he is in jail now.
I will be off of preg.org for a while. My birth buddy, Starryblue702 - Krystal will keep you all up to date. And I will still post on FB every once in a while. I am focused on getting baby Devin here safely.
