Should I get checked out?

I was out tonight to buy flashlight batteries and I hit a guy on a bike with my car (he has a sprained ankle, but is otherwise fine). I, on the other hand, went into shock to the point of losing feeling in my extremities, but I declined being taken to the hospital. Since I got home, I am still really shaky, I've been dizzy, nauseous and having pretty bad cramps.

I have my 8wk ultrasound on Thursday and my first real MW appointment. Should I get checked out before then, or just wait it out. I'm seriously freaked out.

Sound like a panic attack to me (something I'm very familiar with) but uf getting checked out will put your mind at ease by all means do it. Anxiety feeds on itself, so do what you need to do to stop it.

This. Adrenaline can do funny things. Do I think you are in danger of miscarriage due to this incident? No. Not at all. But if you need that piece of mind to calm yourself, go get it!

I have been feeling fine today, aside from a panic attack while I was driving. No cramps or anything-- just morning sickness. So I think everything is fine and I am going to hold out until Thursday.

Thanks for your responses <3
