Hey Hala! So sorry you're going thru more stress. Just know that our bodies are incredibly resilient! As long as you didn't get injured you will be fine. I had an accident with my first pregnancy (troy) when I was pretty far along where I actually was injured on my belly! It hurt so bad and I was in hospital crying/freaking out but the nurses and docs told me they see many many injuries on pg women and babies are almost always fine...  Everything was fine just as they said.

As long as u didn't get hurt in your belly I would say stop worrying! :0)

Please ket us know how your doing!!

Thank u very much Ladies. I'm feeling good so far. baby's kicking the S*** out of me and have been SO active (Thank God) I have no pains and things seem 2b stable.
I'm still gonna monitor my symptoms and rest for a couple of days for reassurance but so far I feel fine.

Cheri, I can't believe I keep going thru the same things uv been thru! let alone the fact that this baby's due on troy's birthday too!! hehe...glad things turned out well with both of us and hope none of us go thru such a stressful time..
I'm just SOO over with this roller coaster.. dunno how I can repeat this experience ever again!

love u all and thanks for ur advice!

I'm sorry to hear you got in a car accident. When I was preggo with my first son, my hubby and I got into a car accident as well and I was almost 7 months preggo. I felt fine, but the officers insisted that I go to the ER to get checked out. They were even going to send the ambulance to get me. My hubby and I ended up going in on our own. The ER immediately sent us to the maternity floor so that we could be assessed so the wait wasn't too long. The baby's heartbeat was monitored for a while and we were given an u/s. Turns out nothing was wrong, thank goodness. If nothing else, we got to see our lil' one again.

I say go to the ER because you can feel fine, but you never know what's going on internally. I hope and pray all is well.

awww Hala! Hope you're okay. If it were me, I would go to the ER (just because I'm a bit of a control freak so I would need to know if everything is okay). I wouldn't rest fine until they checked me over and did a quick ultrasound on baby. Just make sure you're resting and keeping an eye on EVERYTHING. Hope you're okay. You probably got more of a shock than anything!
