Bumpy ride~

My bf drives a car that is "dropped", meaning the car is very low to the pavement. Living in NY, most of you know that we are full of pot holes everywhere!
The bumps are ridiculous and it makes me worried that it is perhaps hurting the baby.
Sometimes the bumps are so rough my butt raises off the seat and hits back into the seat pretty hard. I dont have much pain because of it... but could this be damaging?
I see my doc tomorrow, just woud like to know if you guys have any advice... Thanks(16 weeks)

  • No, baby should be just fine. But you might request avoiding the worst roads, if possible, for comfort's sake. ;-)

  • your body is like her personal.. air bag.. if you wanna say. especially since your only 16 weeks the baby will be perfectly fine. rmr you get the impact before s/he does.
