  • A 3 MONTH old? As in, an infant? kicked you?

    You'll be fine. Your baby is nice and padded in your womb. I doubt an infant could kick you hard enough to do damage.

  • I used to get kneed regularly by my two year old niece when I was pregnant; she wanted to sit next to me but just didn't know how to be careful. DD was fine. Your uterus actually has a system like shock absorbers; if you were to fall you are more likely to be hurt than the baby.

  • An infant can't do any damage. It still hurts? Was it Bam Bam?

  • You're fine. I've had 2 pregnancies with a toddler to care for at the same time. I've been in my 3rd trimest twice with an 18 month old kicking my belly during diaper changes, bouncing on my belly, running and head butting my belly, etc.

  • The baby is really protected. As long as you aren't having contractions or bleeding then there is noting to worry about. Women are in car accidents and have other trauma and the baby is okay.
