  • I think you are fine unless you start to get a lot of cramping or bleeding. Your LO is really well protected in there so she/he is probably fine.

  • i fell down the stairs when i was prego and hurt my back really bad. Look for spotting or any stomach/abdominal pains. Call your OB

  • i fell on the edge of the bathtub and landed right on my belly when i was 5 months or so and i was freaking out! my doctor assured me that the baby is very well protected and it takes the force of say a car accident to cause injury to a fetus.

  • I slipped and fell on a hardwood floor around that time. Doc said as long as no cramping or bleeding everything is fine, baby is very well protected. At that stage there's a lot of fluid around the baby cushioning.
