    Girls I just fell down the stairs : (

    I sorta slipped on the top step and went feet first down about 5 or 6 steps. I landed on my bottom quite hard.

    I sat there for a min in shock and then realised my back is really hurting:cry:

    Babys not moved yet but am going to put the doppler on in a min to check his hb.

    Do you think he should be ok if hb is fine?

    What should I do?

    Not sure hun...didn't want to read and run though. I think if the HB is fine the baby should be fine...but if you're worried it's worth a call to your mid-wife!! Hope you're ok!

    Check his HB.

    He prob won't move because of the shock and you have adrenaline running around your system, watch for 10 movements if you don't get them call hopsital and get trace done.. I did this a few weeks ago, this was the advice from my mum who is also a midwife...

    Aw hunny bet you got a fright!! Check his hb and wait for a few movements if you still feel uneasy call the midwife they'll be happy to check you over. Take big deep breaths and try and calm down too xxx

    Hi hb is ok , steady at around 130 bpm which is normal for him.

    I will watch for some movements as he's usually a right wriggler if I dont get any in next 1/2 hour i'll call l&d for advice.

    My back is killing:cry:

    You should go in and be monitored even if hb seems ok. Falling is dangerous. The baby is so heavy now and can cause placenta abruption. My doctor told me if I were to ever fall or get hit in the abdomen to come in immediately. I hope all is ok. big hugs

    I'm happy that you called, and you're going in. I'm sure everything is fine though, we've got lots of padding to protect our babies, but it's better to be safe than sorry!!!

    Good luck hun, hope you don't have to wait too long once you're there!
