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
sorry don't have any advice but i do know the baby is well protected
hopefully someone will have some words of wisdom for you
oh you poor thing, you must have gotten a fright
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
hope you're feeling ok
but i better be safe than sorry. god daffodil mum sorry to hear about your crash and glad to hear you and baby are ok
thanks for the reply's girls just thought i might be over reacting by ringing the hospital given that i am ok overall apart from the stiffness and wounded pride as it was in a shop.....
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!
