Tripped and fell

Tripped and fell on my belly yesterday. I'm going to be 34 weeks pregnant on Tuesday and my next doctors appointment is also on Tuesday. I have been feeling baby move and I have listened to his heartbeat on the doppler.

Everything seems fine.
What would you do?

  • That happened to my husband's Aunt and her doctor said everything was fine. The fluid around the baby helps protect it but to ease your mind call the on call doctor, remember its what we are paying them for. You will sleep better tonight if you do. GL

  • my friend was hit in the belly with a soccer ball at her daycare job when she was pregnant, everything was fine for her too. i think it takes very high impact to affect the baby, so unless you tripped and fell from a 3rd floor window, im sure everything is fine :) just don't forget to mention this on Tuesday so they can take a look and ease your mind.
