23 weeks and a little scare

  Please excuse the hot mess behind the phone/camera....I have a good excuse. 
For those of you that follow me on IG, you probably already know, but we had quite the scare over the weekend.  
Saturday afternoon I took a pretty bad tumble down my stairs, like from the 2nd step.
I didn't stop until I hit the front door. 
It was absolutely terrifying. 
Immediate tears, ladies, immediate. 
I was so scared, couldn't move, and all I could think about was Leighton and thanking God I wasn't holding Elise when I fell. 
The Hubs was home and he jumped into action. 
He and my Momma have been my heroes this week. I am so thankful for them!
I have been to the doctor and all is good with our girl! 
My placenta actually moved, which is crazy, but as the amazing Man upstairs would have it, it actually moved into a safer place. What are the odds?!
I, on the other hand, not so pretty. 
I have some awful looking bruises and have jacked up my tailbone. 
I don't know for sure that I broke it as the only way to find out is an X-Ray, but if I didn't I did something major to it!!
I was in bed from Saturday to yesterday, finally feeling some what normal today! 
All and all, we are so very blessed. Things could have been so much worse!
But we are all safe and happy!! :)

Sleep? I have had lots of it these days due to being in bed all day everyday....it's been nice!
Movement? all the time. it's THE BEST!

Anything making you queasy or sick? nada!!
Labor signs? Still getting Braxton Hicks every once and a while.
Belly button in or out? Still in!
Wedding rings, on or off? still on and loose actually
What I Miss? nothing really these days :)
Symptoms? these panic attacks/shortness of breath are out of control these days. I actually was put on some medicine on Friday for them...bleh!
