  • I would call the doctor just to be on the safe side.

  • Thats your call. I fell many times on the ice this winter while I was pregnant and as long as I felt my girl move I didn't bother calling.

  • if you're nervous call L&D i was told any time after the 20 week point to call L&D instead of going into the ER or calling the doc after hours.

  • i hope you're calling right now, there's no use asking online if you should call, just do it and they will tell you!

  • i had that happen to me my 40lb dog jumped on me and i went to the doctors office they hooked me up for a non stress test and i was fine so was my daughter, if shes moving then shes fine. thats what the doctor told me. if you want to hear it for yourself call in and tell them. its your decision but if you go to the hospital your going to be ther for a while.
