Your uterus is hidden behind your pubic bone at the moment, you'll be fine, don't worry.

My 2yr old nephew jumped and kicked me (playfully) early on in my pregnancy. Worried me at the time but everyones right ur baby is hidden behind ur pubic bone at this stage and is well protected.

Good luck with everything

My 40 lbs 5 year old jumped all over me when I was in the early stages of pregnancy, and the baby is fine. Not to worry.

Not only is the baby behind the pubic bone, it's also behind your stomach muscles and is sitting in the middle of a bag of muscle (uterus) that is full of fluid. Imagine a rubber bag full of water with a tadpole in the middle. You could hit that bag pretty hard and all the force would get spread out all over it and the tadpole would just get sloshed a little.

As far as an ultrasound goes: do you have insurance? In the US, doctors seems to do dating scans a little earlier than they do in the UK: lots of women get one at 8 or 10 weeks. But that will vary by doctor, location, and situation (for example, if you have very irregular periods and so could be 1 month or 4 months pregnant, the doctor would be more likely to do an earlier scan.)
