Hi everyone, need a bit of reassurance, went to the midwife today heard my baby's heartbeat clear and healthy!!! About half an hour later had a little fall out side think I took most of the fall on my knee and hands, just wondering if this would do anything to the pregnancy or am I just being silly??? Was really upset after sound it cause I thought how stupid can you be any advice is welcome I have googled it but wanted to hear the answer straight to me thanks girls xxx

You'll be fine, it would take a pretty big fall to cause an issue - monitor yourself for feeling unwell/ bleeding/ excessive leakage and if its fine I'm sure you'll be ok. You could always ring your maternity assessment unit for reassurance if you think you hit your stomach, but at 16 weeks your uterus is still pretty low down and protected so unlikely to have had any impact.

I would agree with above, but if you have a bruise, esp on your abdomen, and are rhesus negative you may need an anti D.
I fell last week, nothing major but left me feeling quite shaky and vulnerable. Hope you feel better soon flowers

I'm 31 weeks with a huge bump and had a big fall yesterday. Fucking hurt. I caught myself with my knees and wrists, and as you say I was shaken afterwards. Baby is so well protected in there it would really take a significant blow / trauma to do any damage. As long as you don't have any fluid loss or bleeding then I'm sure all will be fine, but get checked out if you're worried.
