I'm 22 weeks and my younger cousin head butted me in the stomach. I'm worries if that can cause a miscarrage?

  • Probably not. Babies are pretty well protected by your body and the fluid around them. I wouldn't let it happen again, though. If the impact was hard enough that you are in pain from it, take it easy and make an appointment with your doctor just in case. But more than likely, you're fine.

  • Very UNLIKELY. In fact, you'd be in the hospital right now if it was to cause a miscarriage.

  • I'm not in any kind of pain. I was just being a little too worried because this is my first baby but thank you.
