At L&D...had car wreck (update)

I got in a wreck about 3 hours ago. A lady pulled out in front of me and I tried to stop but I hit her. I'm in L&D getting monitored. So far so good.

The monitors showed that I had 3 contractions in an hour but that's normal so no worries there. For Carter the monitor wasn't showing accelerations so they had me drink a lot of water and change positions. That perked him right up and he started kicking the monitor on my belly! The doctor said everything looks great and they let me go home. I feel better knowing that he's ok. I've had some crampy pains and my hips hurt but other than that all is well and he's still baking! My car is likely totaled but as long as my baby is ok I don't even care.

Thanks for all the kind words! You girls are the best!

I'm so sorry that happened to you! What a frightening experience.

Please KUP - I'm sending "keep baking" vibes to Carter.

Hope everything continues to be OK. I got in a wreck when I was 39 weeks pregnant with DD. I totalled my car :eek:

Take it easy!

Oh no, I'm sorry to hear about the wreck, Jen. That must've been awfully scary. I'm glad everything is looking good at L&D.

That's terrible! Glad you are ok, and I'm sure Carter is too. I had one at thirty nine weeks as well and everything was just fine.

Not sore at all today, thanks for asking! Mercedes is a great car to wreck in, apparently. It absorbed the impact really well. My car got towed to a body shop today and I'll find out next week if they are going to fix it or total it. There's quite a bit of damage so I think there is a good chance of them totaling it.

aww, hugs! i only just saw this - SO glad everything is a-ok. the good thing about being preggo is that those babies are VERY well protected in our bellies!
