I am 16 weeks (barely showing) and I was boxing today for exercise and it was quite vigorous, ie: rapid movements side to side to perform hook punches and a fair bit of twisting through my torso. I boxed a lot before I was pregnant and I felt absolutely fine during my session today but I started to worry that I was shaking the baby up and it was bouncing off the walls inside me, so I stopped. Again, I feel absolutely normal and fine now but I'm freaking out a little that I may have hurt it!?!?
You think I'm being silly and its super protected in there?
Any advice to calm my angst would be helpful! I'm worrying!

Boxing at 16 weeks?

Your baby is just fine, the only issue is overheating which can bring on premature labour. Just watch your heart rate and not getting too hot.
I certainly do not think you are being silly. I'm also 16 weeks and despite being my 3rd child, so an old hand, I constantly obsess that the baby is ok.

thanks! I was definitely watching temp and HR and that was fine.
I was more concerned about the vigorous jolting movements

They are definitely very well protected in there - many women run etc right through pregnancy. As pp mentioned it is more over heating that could be an issue, and you produce more relaxin during pregnancy so there is an increased risk of muscle strain.
