  • Don't worry sweetie. I can't tell you how many times in this pregnancy my 2 year old has landed on me, kicked me, ect. on accident and my baby is completely fine. Your baby is cusioned by amniotic fluid in his sac.

    REASONS TO BE CONCERNED:

    -If your child weighs more than the typical 2 year old and his weight landed on you with the kick than you might consider a call to the OB.

    -You start spotting

    -You start leaking fluid or think you might be(feel like your peeing on yourself but you can't control it)

    -You start cramping

    -Baby stops moving as frequently as normal

  • That baby is fully protected and it would take a seriously hard blow to hurt it. My husband accidently kicked me while I was pregnant and he was trying to kick a rock out of the way while I was sitting in the drive way and over shot. If you notice cramping, bleeding or loss of movement then call the doctor.

  • You're okay. He's REALLY well protected in there.

  • I also want to add that I was in a car accident at 21 weeks pregnant which caused a pretty large impact and blow to the belly. My baby is just fine. :)
