My First Ambulance Ride!

Although I am not proud of it, I feel like I should share. Friday as I was getting out of my car to go to work, I slipped and feel in the parking lot. I landed smack on my rear. Getting up I knew I hurt something, but I was hoping that I would be able to walk it off. I walked into work and tried to sit down (ya, that didn't work). I felt a little nauseous so I went into the bathroom. I tried to bend down and pain shot through my body. After that everything was a little blurry. My co-worker, Jami, ended up calling the paramedics and they took me to the hospital. Turns out I broke my tailbone, but the pain must have caused some weird blood pressure stuff because I was clammy and hot and totally out of it. Nothing was wrong with the baby, which I never felt like there was. I just got a major pain in my butt!!! Recovery has been on and off. I am trying to take as little pain meds. as possible. This was the first day I dared to take the stairs to get to my computer and made it without a lot of trouble. Anyway with all that said, baby and I are fine and healing well.
