What a week! Friday, last, Peter and I left for a nice weekend in Washington D.C. to visit his aunt. We are driving and driving and driving. In Maryland about 30 minutes away from our destination we are stuck in very slow going traffic. I decide to relax a bit in the car and am just staring out the window thinking about how this is the perfect weather/traffic condition for a car accident. 30 seconds later I'm screaming "ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME" as we are being slammed from behind by a cadillac and being pushed into a mini van!!!! Being pregnant you really don't want this to happen. An ambulance comes because I obviosly need to be checked out. The EMT basically tells me that they are too busy to take me to the hospital. I ask "What does that mean?" She says "the hospital is too busy. so if we take you or if you go alone you are just going to sit in the waiting room for a really long time." So I decide to go on our own because with the ambulance we would get there just as fast anyway. I waited over 5 hours in the waiting room just to go into the emergency room and have them tell me that they can't do anything that i'll have to go upstairs to maternal. We get up to maternal. They were so happy to see me because they had NOTHING TO DO! I could have been in and out of the hospital in 3 hours if they just took me up there to begin with! So after a few more hours in maternal we finally get to D.C. at 4:30 am. Needless to say i've been a hot mess since then. That all changed yesterday (wednesday) when I got my ultrasound and all was good with the baby. No damage from the accident! Horray!!! After the appointment I breathed a big sigh of relief and went to Zen Palette in Union Square and had myself a big ass lunch of fried dumplings and sesame medallions!
By the way. IT'S A GIRL!!! Peter thinks she looks like Charlie Brown.
p.s. our honda civic (the white wolf) destroyed the 2 ton cadillac! that thing had to be towed to a junk yard after hitting us also the guy had no car insurance, that should be fun getting him to pay. oh well.
