Hit stomach on a fence


Long story short... I may or may not very stupidly tried to climb over a fence. Don't judge me. It's a long, stupid story. I hit my stomach close to my breasts. It hurt and I felt my uterus contract but within a minute the pain was gone. I have the smallest of scrapes. Baby has moved since, right on his usual schedule. Is it worth even mentioning to my doctor? I have kaiser so I can just shoot her an email and they get back to me within a day. I imagine I'm fine I just wonder if there is anything I should worry about that I'm not. Thanks!

Babies are pretty well-cushioned in there. Generally I think the only time you'd worry is if you were in a serious car accident or fell down a flight of stairs -- something REALLY serious. I'm clumsy and I'm always bumping and banging my stomach. I burned my stomach on the edge of the oven door when I leaned too close to get something out. If there's no pain, no strong contractions, no bleeding or fluids, etc., and the baby is moving, I seriously doubt there's an issue, but you could always shoot an email to your doctor for extra peace of mind.

I would send your doctor an email just for peace of mind, but I'm sure baby is fine because he has so much padding to cuddle into. It's a good sign baby is as active as usual

My 3 year old daughter literally jumps on my stomach daily, even though I tell her there's a baby in there and she is going to hurt her. There's been a couple times where it has been pretty hard, but my doctor said everything should be fine and the baby is very well cushioned in there As long as you keep feeling movement you should be good, but worth mentioning it to your doctor just for reassurance.

Thanks ladies! Doctor kind of giggled because she said if I was going to have him checked out then it would have needed to be right away but as long as no discharge, bleeding, intense pain, or decreased movement then I'm good

When I was pregnant with my first I fell several times and knocked him around quite a big. He's 100% healthy

With this LO I just had my 6 month old lab jump right on my belly. Baby is perfectly fine. They're well cushioned in there.
