Need Advise?!

post #1 of 4

I just fell walking inside the house. Most of it was on my hands on knees but I hit my belly enough to have scraped it (38 weeks) - what should I be watching out for?

Baby is moving well

You'd be surprised how much of a jolt a pregnant belly can take, safely.....generally there is a lot of shock absorb-ability there, between layers of your skin, fat, muscle and then also amniotic fluid. As for signs--watch baby's movemt over the next hours, watch for bleeding (incl. membrane rupture w/bloodstained fluid), or any feeling that something is wrong such as faintness, rapid heart rate, etc (as in, a hidden bleed). But really, you are most likely fine, along w/your baby.

You will probably be fine. Watch for bleeding, change in baby's movement, abdominal pain and rigidness, nausea.

Are you Rh negative? If you are and have declined prenatal Rhogam I strongly advise you to consider it now.
