ER question

My oldest came in the room with my 16mo (25lb). I am lying down reading a story to dd2. She "accidentally" dropped him (about a foot and a half free-fall) right on top of the baby. I am 16 weeks along. I just checked, no blood. But I am a bit crampy and it is sore, of course, where she dropped him. Should baby be ok or should I go in for peace of mind?

I think baby is probably fine. At 16 wks baby is probably still pretty snug but I would make a call to your ob and see what they think. I can call mine any time of night and they let me know if I should go up there.

I would head into L&D to check, since most L&D units will take you at 16 weeks and beyond.

depends on where she is. The L&D will not see you before 20+ weeks maybe later
