car accident

so jake and i got into a car accident on friday night. we were on a 2 lane highway and someone in front of us was making a left hand turn so it stops everyone behind him. so as traffic stopped someone re-ended us. we were both wearing our seat belts. so we pulled over and called the police. neither of us were really hurt. the seatbelt did hurt the top of my stomache, so i called my mom and the doctor and both of them told me to go er. i really didnt want to but we went anyway. when we got there things started out good, they checked us in and triage me pretty fast, but then we had to wait 3 hours to go back. we got an ultrasound done and everything looked good. by this time it was around 130am. when we got back from ultrasound the doctor finally came in and did an exam. and not one of those nice ones. but im not going to go into details. since the hospital we went to didnt have a labor and delivery the doctor called thier sister hospital to get an opinion from a obgyn. that doctor wanted me to get observed on a fetal monitor for a few hours. so around 230am the called an ambulance and they transfered me to snai hospital about 25mins away. to make things worse jake and i were on our way to dinner and we didnt make it so neither of us had eaten since lunch time. we were both starving and exhausted. luckily our nurse diane...who was great...found us some extra turkey sandwhiches in a frige. they were the best sandwhiches that we have ever eaten!. when we got to the snai they put me on a mointor and the nurse checked me out. we waited about an hour for the ob doctor to see us and then she sent us home. the baby was good. normal heart beat and she was kicking a lot. by the time we had gotten home it was 500am! i couldnt believe that a simple trip to the er turned out to be an all night affair. because it was so dark at the time of the accident, we couldnt see any damage, but when jake checked the car on saturday he noticed that our hitch is totally broken. the other guys car was pretty smashed up too. he was driving a honda civic. were just thankful that no one was really hurt and the baby is ok.

wow, that is scary. I am glad you guys are ok and it wasn't worse. there is nothing worse than being pregnant and having something like that happen to you. sorry about your ER experience, I have never had a "fast" visit there either. are you going to deliver at that hospital far away? or is there one closer with a labor an delivery unit?
