I banged my butt on the floor of the tub and my arm on the side of the tub. I'd know by now (4 hours later) if anything bad happened, and nothing probably did, right?

It sounds like other than your bruised bumm you're fine. : Your li'l one is well entrenched and cushioned at this point. I fell on some stairs (3 or 4 bumps)and broke my tailbone when I was 4.5 months pregnant with ds1. He was just fine.
Hope you heal up fast

I fell down a few stairs at christmas time and I'm 7months pregnant. Other than being a bit bruised, I was fine. I told my OB and she said as long as there is no blood or unusual discharge, you should be fine. I think the only thing I did was wake up my boy! He started moving around like crazy after I fell. I have since had a ultrasound and my boy is totally fine.

If you have any doubts, call your doctor.

I fell HARD on my butt in the first trimester of my last pregnancy. Everything was fine If you're not having weird pains or bleeding, I'm sure your bean is fine too.

Ouch! Hope your butt feels better and glad you didn't harm the little one!

I've been expecting this to happen to me. Yesterday I was at Wal-mart and *finally* remembered to get some of those sticky-grippy things you put on the floor of the tub. I haven't put them on yet but after this post I think I will go do it right now!

i fell @ about 8 weeks preggo down the stairs, and had some pretty bad cramping. went to the ER (per OB recomendations) and had an u/s - everything looked good.

i also fell at about 18 or 19 weeks with #1, and again, everything was fine

i hope your elbow feels better soon!!!!
