I'm 33 wks and I hit my belly...help!

I was close to the doorway and was facing sideways when I turned I hit my belly hard. It hurt after and for a little bit more after that. I then decided to sit down for a while, rubbed my belly in the area where I hit myself (the left side of my belly). I have felt the baby move but it kinda hurts still. I called the doctor's office and told them what happened. The nurse told the doctor what happened and he said that I would be fine and to take some tylenol if it still hurts. But since this is my first baby I'm still scared...it still hurts a bit. What should I do? Have you experienced this?

  • I think you will be ok and so will the baby. Remember your little one is in there floating in water and that acts as a cushion in most cases. If you still have alot of pain or its consistant like contractions you can time and wont go away then go to the hospital.

  • You'll be ok, don't worry. I fell twice while I was pregnant and got hit in the belly a few times and regardless of my clumsy self my son was born just fine. Try to take a deep breath and relax, don't stress.

  • This being your first baby,I don't think anything anyone here can say will reassure you. you're a first time mom-to-be [congrats!],but that also means you're gonig to worry over this,and honestly it sounds like you'll be fine [baby too!]. Do you know why your little one is floating in their own little water bubble? It's a cushion,to protect them during development before birth. It hurt YOU,which sucks,but your baby is FINE. As long as you're still feeling fetal movements,and you have no leakage of any kind [particularly anything bloody,dark looking,or consistently flowing] then it sounds like some tylenol and an ice pack would do the trick for you.
    Not that this will reassure you any, but I rode on the back of my mate's motorcycle all over the worst,bumpiest dirt roads in NC for the first 7 months of my 1st pregnancy,and the baby came out just fine!
