Hey all! I haven't posted much because I haven't had any free time, but now it's about all I have. I broke my leg 3 days ago and am for all practical purposes confined to the couch (thank goodness for my laptop and wireless Internet). The baby seems to be OK, as I took the fall on my leg and not my hip or abdomen, but I wish I was for sure feeling movement so I could be more reassured.

Oh no, Mandi! I'm so sorry. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug"> That must have been so scary; it sounds like you protected your abdomen just right, though. I'm sure everything will be fine.<br><br>
I know it's not fun to be confined to your couch, but all I'm thinking right now is, "Well, at least she can rest." <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"> Can you tell the extreme exhaustion of pregnancy just hit me this week?<br><br>
I hope you heal quickly!

Thanks for the wishes. I am only in the thigh-high cast for 3 weeks, so after that I should be able to get around much better. I feel really terrible for my one-year-old, because I can't interact with him like he's used to. This has to be quite an adjustment for him.

Oh my god. I'm so amazed that you can say "I'm only in the thigh-high case for three weeks..." Way to be positive about a tough situation, there! I hope you're getting a lot of help with your little one, and that you have the fastest-knitting bones in the county.
