Nothing Like a Trip to the E.R.

To keep everyone on their toes! Last night I was leaving for a friend's house and on my way out was taking the trash to the trash can. I took one step on the driveway and BOOM! I slipped and fell hard on my right side. It hurt, but I immediately started freaking out because of the baby. I couldn't believe my luck! I started yelling for Brian and he finally heard me as I was getting up. Clayton ended up going into a tizzy because of all the commotion--he knew something was wrong. I called the nurse and she definitely recommended going in to get checked out. So instead of going to visit with my friends, I got to make a trip to Labor and Delivery. The ultrasound of the baby looked fine--he was moving like crazy, so much so that they could hardly get a good read on his heartrate. I stayed hooked up to the monitors for about thirty minutes to make sure I wasn't having contractions and then we were on our way. I've got a heck of a bruise forming on my leg and I'm noticing my right arm is sore today too, so I must have landed on it as well. I had planned on doing some things today, but I'm thinking I'll just take it easy and not push my luck any farther!
