Hello, I just found out I am pregnant!!! 4 wks ago I was trying to be cool and ride my 7yr old son's BMX bike, I barley got on there and made it to the middle of the BMX bike track and fell. I tried to catch my fall with my right hand and broke my wrist into 9 pieces, ended up requiring an emergency surgery since there was a compound break, a plate and 10 screws later I am out of the hospital. Then 2 wks later my Dad dies!!! 4 wks later I find out I am pregnant!!! I didn't think it would happen since My husband and I have been like if it happens it happens for more than 2 yrs now. It happens now!!! I have been on pain meds! I have been grieving over my father. I have 2 boys 7 and 5 and now I am freaking out. I will make an app with OB to make sure with these pain meds I am taking and see if my pregnancy is healthy. I estimate I am only about 3 wks. I stopped the pain meds but in a lot of pain and will be starting therapy which I hear is very painful. I feel awful as I think this will be so challenging. I am 39 and will be turning 40 when I am about 6 months prego. I am freaking out and wish I was more carful. Anyone has any advice or been hurt and perg like this?
