  • Most likely baby is fine. My brother kicked my so hard directly me my abdomen when I was pregnant with DD that it sent me flying and I fell down hard.

    My uterus was bruised and I spotted a little but baby was fine. If you fell and did not even hit your abdomen I would say baby is most likely fine.

    I am 15 weeks as well and just had my 3RD OBGYN appointment. I am VERY surprised that you have not had any at all. GET TO A DOCTOR!

    Regular check ups are important while pregnant unless you are doing your own prenatal care.

  • The baby is soooo small and surrounded by so much fluid that you shouldn't worry. Even if you did land on your belly, it'd be like getting punched through a waterbed contact with anything hard. Rest easy!

    (By the way, I was over 5 months along before seeing anyone. Baby turned out just fine! Take care of your health! )

  • The baby is probably fine. Yes even if you dont hit your stomach it is possible for the placenta to detach or something else to be wrong. But i would definatly call the doctor or go to the ER your weeks and havent had an ob apt yet? thats not good. to wait early prenatal care is the only way to make sure there are no problems and if there are they could be fixed it caught early. Not seeing a doctor is not worth the risk
