yes, again

So this new job of mine is a speech pathology job, but it’s different than previous jobs in that I travel to each child’s home and provide the services there. So I’m driving more than normal for me.

Yeah. Well, this morning I was on my way to a kiddo’s house, when the light I was going to turn left at turned red. I stopped somewhat quickly, but the guy driving the big Will.iams truck behind me didn’t. Or rather, he seemed to stop himself with my car.

I stayed remarkably calm. Calmer than I would have guessed. My car is in pretty good shape considering the sheer size of his truck. The bumper is screwed. But the entire time, all I was thinking about was this baby.

So I called (these OB people are going to think I’m absolutely nuts) and had the sono a day early. No bleeds anywhere, and the little critter had grown the 6-7 days it should have since the last scan. It definitely moved around today, arms, legs, it’s whole body kind of wriggled. And it had clearly changed positions within the sac. They said the sac looked good, the heart rate was 173 again.

I go again in 10 days for another scan. Barring any additional car accidents, that is.
