Anyone else hit their bellies?

post #1 of 4

I was clumsy today and hit my belly on the table! I forget how big my belly has gotten and when I went to sit down at the table I hit my belly on the edge and it hurt. Now I'm worried. I can't believe I did that. :-( I'm 17 weeks and will have my anatomy scan done this Sat so I'm trying up not worry.

I don't think you'll need to worry. The baby is very cushioned in there and the amniotic fluid will also protect it from bumps.

I haven't bumped mine hard, but I'm certainly finding it difficult to squeeze through spaces and between furniture!

I haven't really hit my belly yet (beyond my 21 mo old DS kicking me) but I fell on ice a few weeks ago and landed HARD on my tailbone. It's still bruised and sore. When pregnant with DS I tripped and fell forwards onto my belly twice, once around 32 weeks and once around 36 weeks. I was freaked out but my midwife assured me there is a ton of cushioning in there and the babes do just fine!

I'm sure the baby is fine. I felt the baby move that evening and today. My tummy feels a little sore though.
