  • fyi..
    if you don't want any rude snobbish shouldn't include ur age next time. and plus we don't really need to know it anyways...
    Good Luck

  • First off, go to your doctor if you get into any kind of wreck! I know you might feel a little silly, but better to be safe and all that. Second, stop reading! lol I know exactly what you are going through there- I was reading about different birth defects in my first trimester and was scared to do ANYTHING! I literally turned into a nervous wreck for the entire trimester. I have had several miscarriages and the last one was at 12 weeks. Even at 12 weeks, I was in so much pain, and there was a lot of blood. If you aren't bleeding and have no abdominal pain, I wouldn't worry too much. Please though, go to your doctor for a checkup just to make sure.

  • a 22 week baby would be hard to pass without noticing it. I'd just go to the doc (if you have one) and ask them to listen to the Fetal heart rate. You'll feel better listening to it and they'd be able to tell you if it were a normal rate.

  • your age is irrelevant.
    It was bad judgement on your part not to go to the Dr. right away after your accident. Your baby is probably fine but better safe than sorry.

  • i was also in a minor wreck when i was pregnant. i was 19 weeks and like 4 days along. but bc i wasnt 20 weeks the hospital wouldnt have let me go to the ob dept. i wouldve waited forever! so i called my dr and they said not much could be done other than heartbeat, which i did anyways. all was well it was also a minor accident (got side swiped but slow speed). if you havent had any cramping or bleeding, you're probably just fine.
