Driving home from work about an hour ago, I get into an accident. All because some guy doesn't know what "Left lane ends" means. He floors it trying to get in front of me on my left when everyone slams on their breaks and I smash into the car in front of me, everything in my car goes flying and my seatbelt digs into my lap.
Holy shit. What the fuck just happened. My heart is still racing. All I can think of is my LO and how shaken up he must be in there.
Luckily my car was still driveable and the airbag didn't go off, so I was able to go home (after I stopped shaking.. which took a while). Right now I'm sitting with my feet up drinking juice to monitor my little guys movement to make sure he's ok. He usually isn't very active this time of day, and he has kicked a few times on the drive home so that made me super happy to feel. I know people get in fender benders all the time while pregnant, but I'm just terrified that I did something to hurt him..
Obviously if he stops moving or if I get crampy or start having contractions I'm going to call my dr.. but If he keeps moving and I don't have any pain or cramping, should I still call and let my dr know about the accident? Would you get yourself checked out if everything seemed ok? I'm sorry if this seems rambly, but I'm freaking out and I don't want anything to happen to my LO.
