    Default Could I have done damage?

    Hi guys,

    I'm 6.5 weeks pregnant and I work with children that exhibit challenging behaviours.

    We had an 8 year old have a very violent outburst today and I needed to help my colleague move the child to a safe place. It took a lot of effort to move him (I was holding one of his arms). I didn't get hit in any way but it was strenuous. It probably only took between 30 seconds and one minute.

    I was puffing heavily afterwards, but I am quite unfit.

    We have steps to avoid this, but it was one of those things today where if I stood back completely my colleague would have been injured.

    Should I be worried?

    Thanks in advance

    Thank you, ladies.

    He was trying his absolute best to hit and kick but luckily he didn't manage to.

    He's just so big and so strong for his age!!

    I'm going to have to tell my boss about my 'condition' this afternoon so we can guarantee that I'm not in this position again.

    It will be fine
    When I was around 3 months pregnant I had a child kick me in the stomach pretty hard whilst I was giving him a hair cut at work, I had some spotting afterwards but it was fine, then when I was 33 weeks I feel pretty bad an did quite a bit of damage to my pelvic bone, bub was fine (can't say I felt to fine though lol)
    They are quite protected in there, but I would tell your work just so you can keep on the safer side of things
