  • It's HIGHLY unlikely...but if she's hurting you she needs to stop, anyway! :D

  • You need to teach her to be more gentle, and soon! Don't tell her to be careful of the baby, because she doesn't understand all of that. Tell her that she is hurting Mommy! Now is a good time to teach her to be gentle and calm around small living things, because really soon there will be a live baby in your home!

    Your water is pretty protected, so it is unlikely that she will break it. However, it is more likely that she will bruise you, and cause you discomfort.

  • I would be more worried about the placenta tearing...I wouldn't think it is a good thing to let your child jump on your tummy when you're prego. I know women who have done that to force miscarriage. =\
