  • Hey I electrocuted myslef two weeks ago while cleaning my oven. I got the light bulb socket wet and it held me there. Luckily, I was on the phone with my mom and she called my MIL who lives beside us and she came and took me to the ER. Two weeks later I'm still feeling the baby kick and move so I'm sure things are fine. The ER doc explained that my body would have absorbed the majority of it and not to worry.

  • Yikes!! I'm sure your body adsorbed the effects of it. Just take it easy, watch for any cramping and don't try to plug anything else in for 9 more weeks! lol

  • I was walking in a storm with an umbrella when I was preggo. Dumb, I know. I got a little shock/struck by lightning. My son is fine.
