Pregnant and on crutches.....

I am on crutches bc i tore ligaments and tendons in my ankle.... I'm not sure if i am pregnant yet or not but am pretty sure.... with me being on crutches can it put strain on my baby? When I go up the stairs to my room I have to sit on my butt on the stairs and pull myself up the stairs, could that also put strain on my baby?

  • you'll be fine if your pregnant

    just remember typical rules of when you have a limb your not using...prop it up above your heart to help blood flow when resting.
