It was bad, but we are both okay.

I got into a car accident last night coming home from my parents house. I merged onto I-85 South from 316. A green explorer started to come into my lane and I over corrected and swerved hard to the right, then back to the left. I lost control and slammed head on into the concrete wall on the right hand side of the road.
I was taken to the hospital by ambulance (not with the lights on) and was thoroughly checked out by a doctor. I was given an extensive ultrasound and the baby is doing fine. I have read in all of my books to keep your seatbelt low and I am so glad I did that.
The car is totaled but I walked away with just some intense bruising, and a burn from the seatbelt.

We went back today to see the damage. It shocked me and Adam both when we pulled up and saw this.It is put into perspective, how fragile we are, when you can walk away from something like this. With not only your life but the life of your baby.
Here are my plants I had just purchased with mom at the growers outlet. Not sure what I can save.
My dad sent me home with some TP and Paper Towels and they were all over the floorboards. Adam's bowling shoes were thrown into the front seat on impact, but I was not hit by anything.Thankfully the airbags and seat belt did their jobs. Here you can see my seat belt burn. There is another one on the tops of my thighs.The Paleo Kitchen is closed for the weekend. I'm laying down and taking my muscle relaxers. That was all the Dr. could give me since I'm pregnant. Thanks for all your phone calls, thoughts and prayers.
Drive safely everyone!
