have you ever been startled badly while pregnant?

Im staying with my Mom while my Dh is away at work. She was baking chicken in the oven and decided to take a fast shower. When she got out the whole house was filled with smoke. She started yelling that something was on fire. that scared me so I ran in there. The chicken had been popping and there was no catch pan at the bottom so it was causing smoke. Well I was opening the doors to get the smoke out. My Mom started screaming and It scared the crap out of me I ran in there the pan had broken... I now have cramps... have you ever been scared so bad you got cramps? was it okay?

  • Nothing like scaring a pregnant lady.. what do people want, the baby to fall out!? lol

    Anyways.. I haven't but if it concerns you, just call your doc, or L&D at the hospital. That's how I am.. anything that worries me, I'm on the phone! lol

  • I had gotten pushed by my now ex husband when I was preggers with my little girl. It scared me and took the breath from me for a few seconds. After I did cramp for a lil bit but they went away as I calmed down. Any type of stress that the baby does not like, the baby will let you know. If you are worried about it still go get it checked just to put your mind at ease. Good luck on the pregnancy.
