    Bub's usually fairly well protected in there but if you're really worried I'd suggest giving the health line a call.

    I fell flat on my stomach at 31 weeks playing touch footy with the kids at school I called to one of the kids to pass me the ball and ran the opposite direction and scored and fell flat

    The hospital checked baby for 30mins and all was grand

    If you're worried then get checked for peace of mind, however keep in mind that the baby is cocooned in the world's best shock absorbing system, and it would take a lot for bub to get hurt (it's the way nature made it). I have also read that mum's should only be worried about accidents/falls if the incident actually lands you in hospital. If not, then it's nothing to be concerned about

    I had a high impact car crash at 21weeks when someone ran into us doing 100km/h.
    I was hysterical for a good hour til I got to see bub in the ER on an ultrasound....
    Turns out bub had hiccups. and I had whiplash.

    They werent worried about bubba at all much. Mainly me, if I had a fractured spine.
    The OB says I could pretty much be hit with a sledgehammer in the tummy and bubba would still be fine.

    I would give the healthline a call if you are worried. I had an entire patient trolley with a 100kg+ patient on it fall on me and pin me against a wall by my abdomen when I was 25 weeks with DD1 and I was totally black and blue. My Ob said DD probably thought "what was that little bump". The bigger issue is apparently how stressed you get and how your body reacts. Call the healthline for peace of mind though. Good luck.

    Hi,

    I slipped and fell when i was around i think 25weeks i was stressing so i just went to my gp the next day or if you ar still worried then go to your local hospy ring an ambulance if you can't get there.

    I'd rather be safe than sorry but as others have said bubba is VERY well padded and I am sure it will all be fine.

    Take Care...

    Bubby would be fine, pregnant bellies have an anti-shock system. I fell over when I was less than 12 weeks in a shopping centre holding 2 heavy shopping bags (hubbie always said to get a trolley). My old boots where slippery. I hurt my back pretty bad and didn't know what to do afterwards, was in so much pain. Mum said not to get in bath tub but to apply ice to my back. It did help, but I used all the ice and didn't have any for my bad 1 1/2 hour nose bleed - thats another story.
