Hello I am about 14 weeks pregnant and I've just knocked/bumped my stomach at the top just under my boobs, would this harm my baby? Or am I being paranoid? I'm sorry for being silly but what do I do as I'm slightly worried as it my first time. Just need some advice smile

No I wouldn't imagine there wld be any risk. What did you bump it on?

At 14 weeks a) your baby will be low down in your womb - between hip bones rather than up at the top and b) you have a thick wall of stomach muscles that will protect it. A bump is nothing to worry about. Hope that reassures you a bit.

Was playing catch with friends child earlier and just bumped top of my stomach. Sounds stupid I know.

I dropped a jar out of a cupboard onto my bump when was 25ish weeks - rang midwife and said as long as no bruising should be fine. Baby we'll protected in there and didn't feel the need for me to In or anything. If bruise then ring the midwife
