  • Call just to be sure. You are most likely fine but the doc may want to evaluate you.

  • I would call to be on the safe side. Since it was on your butt I think you would be ok. The baby probably didn't notice. I have fallen so many time during my pregnancies. I am a huge klutz. My first pregnancy I fell flat on my stomach at 4 months. I freaked out really bad but the doctor told me the baby was still cushioned very well because the baby was still low. I have also fallen about 3 times with this baby. One time I had just found out and I fell down the last step of my stairs and twisted my ankle. Another time I was 3 months and slipped and fell on my butt in the mall. The floors were wet from rain. Then about a month ago I slipped in my kitchen and fell on my butt. It never hurts to call the doctor and find out though. I have been fine ever time I have fallen so I believe you will be too. Good luck with the baby.

  • Call to be on the safe side, but baby is pretty well cushioned in there so don't stress over it.

  • I would suggest calling but I will tell you that when I was 10 weeks pregnant my 13 year old brother kicked me VERY hard in the abdomen (behavioral problems) and it made me fly across the room and fall into a chair.

    I went to the ER because I started spotting and they said my uterus was brused. About 8 months later I delivered a healthy baby girl and the kick did not complicate my pregnacy or hurt my baby. They are well cushioned in there. BUT to be on the safe side I would go in to be examined.

  • i would go get checked last year around christmas time i was about 11-12 weeks pregnant and slipped on ice on my stomach, they said i should be fine because i wasn't that far along, a day later i started bleeding on christmas day and lost the baby. I would go in and call.
