You need to tell a medical professional what happened. If they are operating under the assumption that the baby did not receive any trauma and do a basic external check and tell you "everything is fine." You cannot rest assured that everything is fine -- they do not have the full information and need to do a more thorough assessment. If this happened to me, I would want a non-stress test, which is where they monitor the baby's heartrate and your contractions for 30 minutes -- if you went in for a basic prenatal appointment, they probably just listened for the baby's heartbeat for a few seconds. Personally, I would also want an ultrasound to see if your brother caused any damage to your placenta or the umbilical cord, which you could not see from a basic exam, and if you did not tell anyone what happened, they have no idea they need to look for it.

Seriously, if you aren't telling them about your brother hitting you, you're being risky with not only your baby's life but your own as well. What if the blow damaged your placenta, and you are slowly bleeding out? It's a possibility, iirc. At any rate, you cannot assume everything is fine and let it all go. If you don't care enough to have them do a thorough check on the baby, at least you care enough about yourself to make sure YOU are okay, right? This whole thread is preposterous. PLEASE TELL SOMEONE WHAT HAPPENED. Good grief.

I agree. This whole thread is preposterous.

 

I really hope you and your baby come through this without any complications.

I happen to find the the OP rather trollish. I sure hope that's the case rather than the alternative of someone too self absorbed and dense to care for their own child.

Yes, you should call the doctor if you contractions are 5 minutes apart. It is unusual for them to 5 minutes apart and then stop.

Wonderful! Congratulations!

 

Please report your brother to the police, and keep your precious baby far away from him.

 

Again, wonderful news!

That is question for your care provider if you are unsure. If you feel physically ready then it's entirely up to you really. I would recommend protection if you do not want to get pregnant again. You can ovulate before the return of your menstrual cycle.

Health practitioners generally suggest that you wait 5-6 weeks (sometimes even more) after a vaginal delivery before you have sex.  They do a follow up appointment to make sure you are healed and then give you the go ahead.  When is your follow up scheduled for?  But as the PP said, it is mostly up to you if you feel ready (and have stopped bleeding, which would be a sign of still healing).

maymay, do you have a doctor you trust?  A lot of these questions are too individual for us to help you with.  If you're feeling fine and sex didn't hurt, you're probably fine, but you really need a doctor to assess you to make sure you're healing well.  There are so many variables involved in pregnancy and birth that it's just not possible for us to tell you when you should or should not have sex.  I'm glad you used protection, however.  As previous posters have pointed out, you should have an appointment scheduled for roughly 6 weeks after birth.  Hopefully you can get some of your questions answered then.

maymay, you could also ask one of our experts a question. Do you know about our experts?
