yes, babies in utero are built to withstand more than a press into the tummy

Yes Im sure the baby is fine.

The baby is surrounded by your amniotic fluid which is a good cushion.

I wouldn't worry but if you are truly concerned, call your obgyn.

Call your doctor and ask. Or the nurses station at the baby ward.

Yes. My mom went skiing with us and tumbled. The womb is a very safe place. It takes quite a knock.

Should be, but if your worried, give the doc a call. ;) I was carrying my friend's 2 year old down the porch steps (it was late at night, she didn't have shoes on) & I tripped & fell, landing on my stomach. I was so worried, but he was alright. :)

The baby will be fine. He is as safe now as he will ever be.  I had a 4th grader thrown at me at 34 weeks as I broke up a fight at work. The 4th grader bounced off my belly. My baby was fine. The 4th graders involved got suspended for 2 weeks.

 Probably. A child would have to press into your stomach pretty hard in order to cause any kind of injury to the baby.
