  • if you got hit in the belly they would want to check and make sure the placenta is still attatched

  • I would definitely let your OB know, and just keep an eye out for cramps and bleeding. And it depends on the force of the hit.

  • report if someone hit you
    i assumed this
    if you got hit through an accident-no worries about a report

    go to the doctor

  • have you been able to feel the baby kick, is the baby still kicking? if not go to the dr. but honestly if you think your baby may be hurt call the dr if nothing is wrong then they just send you home, better be safe then sorry

  • oh i bumped into a LOT of things when i was pregnant. if it REALLY worries you call the hospital, if nothing else you will get an ultrasound :]

  • What did you hit it on? It sounds like you are going to be fine. I fell down the stairs and landed on my belly and was fine. My doctor told me that there is plenty of "padding" in there, and it is very unlikely that by bending down and picking something up you hurt your baby.

    Granted, its up to you, if you're worried enough to ask on here, maybe you should go to the doc.

  • well i really dont feel it kick that much anyway, jus every now and then, but i havent felt it move since i hit it. and i dont wanna call the doctor or go to the hospital bc, ive been to the doctor this past week and go back next wednesday for an ultrasound and i dont want her to think im jus tryin to get my ultrasound early. and she prolly thinks im crazy bc i worry too much!
