Not much advice needed other than some hand-holding really, please! But I am feeling a bit wobbly sad Just nearly fell in M&S cafe - slipped on the floor (stupid kitten heels will be swapped for flat boots tomorrow) and skidded a bit, but grabbed a table and managed not to fall. Bit of a jolt but no impact or fall, thankfully. There were a lot of horrified gasps from onlookers so clearly the sight of a 37 weeks pregnant woman nearly going flying is a shocking one! Home now and not sure why I'm still feeling shaken - stupid pregnancy hormones I guess - I have deposited ds in front of a dvd so I don't snap at him. Anyone else finding that they are overreacting to little things?! Grrrr hormones....

A few weeks ago I slipped on a wet pavement, skidded and fell over. I landed hard on my knees, which got very bruised, but obviously that was a good way to land as there was no way I could have damaged the baby.

However I immediately burst into tears, and passers-by stopped and stared. Luckily I was with DP and he took me into a nearby cake shop and bought me cake (he knows me well grin). I didn't stop sobbing till the cake was actually in my mouth blush

OOhhh honey hope you are ok, it must be scary, I am a total tenderfoot anyway, (I live in the very beautiful but WET Hebden Bridge) and it is a nightmare for slippy flag stones and pavements, I get so scared anyway after slipping over so many times in the past, and now I have Bub (am 23 weeks) I am even more nervous, but after ready so many lovely mumsnet comments reassuring me that bub is very well supported and secure inside you it does make me happier. (sending you a hug of support via the internet xx take care it is NOt overreaccting at all) xx I woulr have been very upset and worried but you sound much more level headed and now the shock has hit you xx

I feel your pain! Am 32 weeks and on crutches and all the pavements are wet with rain and slippery with fallen leaves and I'm convinced I'm going to go over and be unable to use my arms to break my fall properly because of the crutches! I am just trying to go really carefully . . . not surprised you feel shaken though, I would too.

Poor you. When I was 35 weeks with DD I slipped on ice and fell on bump. Called MW who said go to hospital for a scan. I crashed my car on the way blush but all was fine. It's scary but they are well cushioned!

Oh my, sneezysnatcher - that sounds like a very bad day! Thanks all, for the sympathy smile Bubs has been wriggly since as like I said, I didn't even bump her, so all is well today. Hope we all manage to keep upright for the remainder of our pregnancies!!
