  • I don't think you could hurt your baby. Your muscles & amniotic fluid provide quite a cushion for baby. It sounds like just a minor injury for you & baby probably didn't notice a thing. I remember reading somewhere that an injury that would hurt an unborn baby would most likely be so painful for the mother that it would send her to the hospital in pain. So if you are moving around & doing ok, baby is probably ok. Is baby still moving normally? If you are truly stressed over it, call your provider & get their advice. Good luck!

  • I mean, I don't think you could hurt your baby just by bumping into a door. Obviously, there are traumatic accidents that happen.
