can it hurt the baby if you fall on your hands and knees?

I went to get up, and my foot was asleep and I fell onto my hands and feet, it wasnt very hard, just enough to give me a heart attack... should the baby be ok?

  • It's probably way less impact than you'd get from jogging or running.

  • just try to relax, if u start having any discomforts or pain, go straight to the e.r. just to be certain

  • I say yes that your baby is ok especially if you didn't fall on your belly. But if you are concerned I'm sure your doctor won't mind and they can monitor you for a bit just to be safe.
