hey girls i took a bad fall yesterday eve face down and on my belly unfortunately. i feel ok overall just stiff and sore from trying to save myself. Have been feeling flutters which i imagine is the baby kicking like last week and havent had any spotting. my gp doesnt work weekends otherwise i would have gone to her just to be safe. just wonder did anyone else fall on their bump while pregnant and could you put my mind at ease thanks :thnk

hope you're feeling ok :lvs give the hospital a ring. Are you rhesus positive or negative? you may need a blood test to see if you haven't had one already just in case any of the babies blood mised iwth yours you'd need an anti D injection but give them a call and they'll let you know. try not to worry, I was in a car crash at 28 weeks and wrote the car off - baby was fine despite my complete and utter panic at the time :o(

Hi SA08, give your hospital a call to be on the safe side but as other posters have said baby is well protected. I fainted and fell at 17 weeks at home and although i didnt fall directly on my bump and felt fine afterwards i rang the hospital just in case. They told me to come if i have fallen. All was ok in the end. They did a scan and some bloodtests and sent me on my way. So definatley don't panic. Hope your ok!
