Humpty Dumpty had a GREAT fall....

Not only do I look a bit like Humpty Dumpty right now, yes, its true I had a great fall....and I mean a great fall. We have a little step stool in our pantry so I can reach the top shelf and I was just putting the crock pot lid back up on the top shelf. When I stepped down rather quickly and my foot landed on the high chair tray (which I still cant figure out how it got there-no joke). The tray slid and I, with no great center of balance right now and only being able to fall backwards, fell straight down. I couldn't even get my hands under me, I fell straight on my bum..HARD! Thank goodness my water didn't break but the contractions sure started coming and it gave Beckham the hiccups over an hour.

The worst part is the humiliation and of course John was standing right there to see me in all of my big pregnant glory. I am afraid I messed up my knee though. I tried to get my other leg under me but all I did was manage to fall with my leg in some dead man pose. It hurt last night but I can hardly walk this morning. I hope its just sore. I just took some Tylenol and I think I will go soak in a bath. In all honesty the bath is for my wounded ego as much as my sore knee!

The bigger they are the harder they fall...I'm going to have to agree with that! And even though laughing at a pregnant woman falling is normally a huge faux pas...laugh with me at my brilliance the last thing my ego needs is sympathy!

Ouch! I'm sorry that happened. I fell once when I was pregnant with Sarah and it HURT for a long time afterward!

I'm so sorry about your fall! That isn't fun when your NOT pregnant, but with your fragile PG it would and did scare me when I heard about it. I will say a prayer that it is just sore. Caleb is now talking about what he is going to take back to HIS house- the one where his mom and dad live.

Yeah, that's like the last thing you want to happen but unfortunately it happens a lot with pregnant women. I'm glad your water didn't break as well!

Ha! I fell of a ladder when I was 8 months pregnant with hudson- completely missed the bottom step of the ladder.

The grace of pregnant women...

Your poor bum! That does not sound fun at all! I hope it is feeling better!

Sara said...

Oh Lisa I'm so sorry! That sounds so painful. Take a few warm baths and feel better.

Don't you love those embarassing moments where you wish nobody was around to see! Hope you feel better!

Oh my gosh Lis! I am sorry! I have to admit I did laugh at how you described it as a dead man pose. I can totally picture it! I hope you feel better in time to play with those cute boys when they get home. We got your card... so adorable. My sis in law said wow those are some really cute kids. We miss you guys. I will be in town for new years and I would love to see you!

Sorry boot that... although from your description, I think that would get a lot of hits on YouTube if you had footage.
