37 weeks and fell on my stomach...

So...I'm 37 weeks pregnant and last night my parents' dog was really excited when I came to visit, tripped me, and I fell on my stomach...not too hard, as I hit knees first. He's been moving totally as normal since then, and I've had no bleeding, pain, or anything abnormal. Do you think any damage could have been done to him at all? Should I have went to the Dr.?

  • So not telling you this to scare you, but since you fell on your knees first, all is more than likely fine. Normally, they would want you to come in and just be put on the monitor for a little while to make sure you dont start contracting and that the baby is fine. Also, a little problem with the placenta detatching can happen with a fall(thats very bad), so it is normally better to go on in and get checked. Im sure all is fine, you would have known it by now, but if you happen to fall again, please go in. I took a nasty spill when I was 36 weeks and they brought me in for all that stuff, all was fine, thankfully......(if it wasnt fine, it becomes an emergency thing if the placenta seperates or detatches)

  • if everything seems normal with him, and you didnt hurt yourself either, then I dont see any reason for you to go to the doctor.

    Yea, I'm totally fine. Granted, at the time I was crying because not only did it hurt, but it scared the hell out of me.

  • Ehhhh. You're more than likely fine and so is your baby, but if I were you, I'd go in for the routine testing just in case. I mean, it's not going to hurt anything.
