i broke my arm

yep thats right... on my way to my baby shower - i stepped into a pot hole in the street and down i went.  put my arms out to protect my little girl and caught all the force of the fall with my arm.  ambulance came, they checked me out and said i was good to go to baby shower - I could feel baby girl moving and the only thing that hurt was my arm. EMT said i probably dislocated my elbow.  So i toughed it out through the shower and then after everything was over I had my partner take me to the hospital.  I dont think he realized my pain until the xray tech came and moved my arm around for the xrays. 

Anyhow baby girl is perfect, no early labor signs but i am in a cast with 4 weeks to go until due date... things could have been worse

    Oh no! I'm so sorry that happened to you. What a crazy thing...and on the way to your baby shower!

    Glad you didn't hit your belly on the way down and I hope your arm heals fast:)

    I am so sorry, and I feel your pain.  I fell out of my car (SUV) getting DS out and broke my knee cap.  My right leg has been in an ankle to thigh immobilizer for 5 weeks now, and I should be crutch-free if baby arrives on time.  You have the right attitude to focus on the positive - that your LO is fine.  Hang in there!
