Re: had a fall yesterday now scared please advise

I also fell on my knees when I was around 6 months. I never bled and I the baby's movements were normal in the hours following, so I was never too concerned. Everything turned out fine. You know your baby's movements better than anyone...if they seem out of the ordinary, call your Dr. Better yet, if you are worried, just call...more than likely they will be able to put your mind at ease =)
Enjoying every second with our little love, Taylor Peyton!!

im usre everything is fine if it was just your knees and you can still feel the baby move. but i know if it was me i wouldnt feel better til i got checked out. you can go to l&d or the ER and they can let you hear the heartbeat so you dont have to worry about it anymore.

I am the queen of falling down, especially when pregnant. This time around I've only fallen once. Last pregnancy, I fell twice. I agree with the above poster....I am sure all is fine, but if you are truly worried, just give your doc a quick call. They'll assure you all is ok!

Re: had a fall yesterday now scared please advise

i've never fallen, but i would be more worried about the baby not moving after a fall. i think your baby was just reacting to the sudden movement. i've had a few times when i almost fell down the steps, and my adrenaline started pumping. After that, my baby was moving like crazy! If you're not bleeding or cramping, I wouldnt worry too much.

I too think your baby may have been a little jittery because of the sudden movement but i really do think that all is well if your baby had little to no movement i would be worried. Best of luck to you. Your little one should be fine.
