what happens if someone steps on your stomach while pregnant

Im 16 weeks pregnant and today while naping on the couch with dd she woke up and likes to step on the top of the couch she tried to get up there by standing on my stomach. i had my hand on my stomach and was asleep she did step down a bit for me to feel it and jump up. do you think its bad i never had my kids step on my stomach while pregnant. i do have a little pains in the lower stomach. my daughter is 2 and weights almost 30 pounds.

  • doesnt matter how far along you are.. 30pounds is and can be a lot. you probably are ok, but i would still call your OB. its better to be safe than sorry.
    have a little talk to your DD. That she needs to be careful with mommy now because she has a new baby in the belly. she should understand that.

    :) good luck

  • The baby in your uterus has a lot of cush around it.I don't think it will be a problem. But just in case you could call the doctor and git their advise
