car accident - UPDATE

Got in a car accident. Nothing bad. Lady hit us. Passenger side of the front end. Grill is messed up, hood and front end scratched and dented. The lady's tie rod broke and headlight busted. I jerked forward a tadbit, not much. No pains or anything and my bf insists on going to hospital. To get checked but Baby is moving and kicking like normal... I feel fine. I dont see the need to unless I got hit or jerked really bad or if baby isn't moving or if I'm in pain.

Update: I read all your response ladies. I didn't ignore them. Just got back from hospital. Heart rate was fine, placemats and fluid fine. Baby moving and fine as well. They gave me I.v. because apparently I had some contractions uterus was irritated. But doc said was either from stress, dehydration. They tried giving me I.v. in left hand...I cried. They fished it around deep. Then got it in right-hand no problem. So now I'm home resting. Told me take it easy.

I would always suggest it just to be safe.... If you are feeling fine and baby is moving, that is great! But I would probably still go just to make sure :)

I am glad you are ok. I would just go to the hospital if it eases bf mind... But I agree you are probably just fine.

I guess ill go to ease his mind. He said he's worried about even a little whiplash. He's taking it hard. He was one driving and he wasn't worried about anything else but me and the baby...

To ease his mind I would go. They will check babys vitals, if anything you get a chance to see baby again!

I was in an accident at 34 weeks.  I called my Dr's office, they said as long as I wasn't injured and I didn't hit my belly then it was totally fine.  They said I could be seen right away if I wanted, I chose not to.

I would just call your dr and see what they say. I know it is Sat but there should be an on call number to call. I wouldn't go to the ER if you are feeling fine and baby is moving and you weren't jerked around. ER is for emergencies and you feel fine. If you feel you should go in then by all means, go in and get looked at.
