I fell yesterday, but baby is moving...

Last night I tripped in my driveway.  I caught most of the fall with my hands.  They are scratched, sore and swollen and my foot, knee and spine feel stiff and sore.  My tummy barely touched the ground.  I'm not cramping or bleeding and the baby has been active since then and still.  Should be fine, right?  I emailed my doctor just in case.

How many weeks are you? Yes, you should be fine. Sounds like you did all the right things. Use heat and ice on those sore bits and make sure you drink plenty of water to aid in healing. Feel better!

The baby is probably fine. I'm 33 weeks and fell this weekend on our concrete steps going to door and luckily mostly caught myself and my baby has been moving like crazy.

The fetal movement is a good sign - dr will probably still want to put you on a monitor for a little while to make sure you're not having any contractions as a spill can lead to them, and then pre-term labor.  Hope all is OK as expected.  ;-)

This. I was about 35 weeks with my son and I fell on my front steps flat on my butt with my nephew in my arms. I told the doctor about and he laughed at me after he made sure we were both ok. I was sore for like 3 weeks with a bruised butt.

 Ouch!  Thanks.  He's still moving and it happened at 8 last night.  I'm sore where my body absorbed the impact - hand, knee, spine and shoulder.
