<p>Last night I bumped the side of my stomach into the railing of my stairs. Well today, the area where I bumped my stomach is sore. It feels like a bruise. I am RH- and I remember the doctor telling me if I have abdominal trauma, I have to get the shot.</p>

<p>I am not sure how much trauma is needed, do you think I should be concerned? Would getting a bruise on my stomach be enough to cause mine & the baby's blood to mix?</p>

<p>If you are worried I would certainly call your doctor just to put your mind at ease.</p>

<p>However, I bruise easier during pregnancy.  I think because of the increased blood volume?  Same reason your hands can get red?</p>

<p>Thanks for the reply. I did call but have not gotten a call back.<br>
I had a home doppler and babys heartbeat is good, so hopefully all is ok!</p>

<p>That's good!  God bless home dopplers.  My doc is always like "you shouldn't do that" I'm like "uh, yeah when was the last time YOU were pregnant Mr.?"</p>
