  • When I was about 32 weeks I fell tummy first on the floor. I was fine, the baby was fine. Is your placenta in front or in back do you know? If you do, the doctor said that the worry with it being in the front is that it may separate from the uterine wall. Otherwise, odds are you are fine. If you are in pain that seems abnormal or if you start bleeding I would definately get checked.

  • The baby is really well protected. Pretty much if it doesn't hurt you, it won't hurt the baby.
