Day 324

Crash, bang, ahhhhhhhhh. That was me at four pm this afternoon. A ute decided to pull out of a side street and crash into my passenger side. The car spun around and I was pushed up the road. It happened five hundred metres from my home and a short walk to my OB’s offices. I called Greg as soon as I could stop shaking. I was more worried for our baby than anything else. The seatbelt cut in a little but it wasn’t too bad. Within half an hour of the accident my OB saw us and did a little scan to check on bub. All is fine and as I am still in my first trimester the baby is deep in the pelvis protected. Our car is looking worse for wear but I am so glad no one was hurt. It also happened in slow motion, I could see it coming but there was nothing I could do to get out of the ute’s way. It made me realise again, how precious life is and that things can change in an instant. I have been driving so carefully since being caught speeding a couple of months ago. I learnt my lesson. Now I am a bit shaken up and just hoping no more scary things happen. I just want to get through the next six months smoothly and meet our next little bub.

I love you Hamish, I know you were protecting us today
