Bumped my bump and now have pain. Thoughts?


I'm looking for some reassurance, or some advice if this has ever happened to anyone else....

I am at work, and a couple hours ago my desk chair rolled too far and I ran straight into the counter. It hit me square in the belly, and caused a flash of pain that radiated out the sides.

I didn't feel baby move for about 20mins after, so I drank a root beer to get him to move because my imagination was going wild. He is moving around again, but now it's really painful around my ribcage and on my right side especially. If I laugh or tighten my belly at all, I get flashes of pain wherever baby is. It could be a complete coincidence if he's sitting in a sensitive spot... but I'm worried now!

(I realize that I could call my doctor or go in to the emergency room if I'm really concerned, but I have 3 hours left at work and am just hoping to get some thoughts while I keep my eye on it. )

Thanks!

He's probably fine, but it doesn't hurt to check it out. Rather be fine and sent home than have something wrong and not know about it.

I agree with Xpecta. For some reassurance, my wild, 21lb, 14 month old beats up my bump daily causing soreness and even nausea. He will use it like a ladder and climb his little knees and feet into it and I usually have to call for help to get him off lol.. he is surprisingly strong and very determined. I keep asking how his baby brother is not going to come out bruised already!

If baby is moving around fine now and continues to, the chances are everything is fine. I think the main concern is placental abruption, so watch for bleeding and movements, but chances are everything is fine with LO and probably felt more like a 'fruit in jello' effect if anything

Thank you!!

I called the advice nurse when I left work and her suggestion was to go home, lay on my left side, drink some cold water, and monitor baby's movements/do kick counts. She said any bleeding or fluid meant an immediate trip to the ER, but I would probably be ok monitoring for awhile. So anyways... everything seemed normal at home, besides a little more soreness than usual. I kept an eye on it today, and have a doc appointment tomorrow so I'm relieved we'll get to check on him then.

Being a ftm is so stressful! Lol I have no idea what is normal or scary!

It doesn't get easier in later pregnancies unfortunately! It's just the natural start of motherhood my 5 year old (4 at the time) landed his bony bottom into my bump in a jumping fashion when i was pregnant with ds2 and I went to the ER and all was fine... definitely sore though. With ds2 my bump is permanently sore, I hope ds3 doesn't come out dented

Glad to hear everything is looking good, thank goodness they are so well protected in there!

Sorry for the late reply - I can just imagine little boys bouncing around and using your belly as a landing cushion! Lol

It really is comforting to know that our bumps can take a beating though... thank you!

Our bumps really are incredible the amount of protection they can give! Hope you are feeling better.
