I am 7 months today and I was just outside cleaning up after my dog and slipped in the mudd and fell on my side. My thigh just hurts really bad and my arm, I think maybe i used my arm as a instinct by my side. Baby is moving, but they are weird movements. almost like the hiccups but he is laying funny today and the movements all feel closer to my back. My ? is has anyone in here fallen, know of someone who fell. Should I just pay attention for strange things. I tried calling my drs office, but he is already closed for the day.

i am 37 weeks and i fell down my back stair about a month ago. i slid on my back and i did feel baby move after and i kept track of it. i had appointment two days later and they were mad that i didn't call them right away. i was sent to L&D for a stress test and an ultrasound. they said even if i felt he was ok they needed to check my placenta and other things. call your doctor!

When you fall this late in pregnancy you should always call your doctor and if they are not available, then call the L & D unit and talk with them...they may want to you to come in for a nst or a u/s just to make sure that everything is ok.

My parents have a hill down to their pool (gra__s-covered). I fell on it onto my back when I was very pregnant (like 38 weeks) with my 3rd child. He was ok. But, if you are noticing strange or different movements, you should be seen... is there an after hours answering service or another # you can call? If not, maybe you should be seen in the ER. Most likely everything will be ok. Good luck!

I am almost 29 weeks pregnant with my fourth child. With my first I fell twice one really early about three months in the snow on my stomach, everything was fine, then again at the very end of that pregnancy down a half flight of stairs stomach first onto a tile floor and everything was fine, she is a very smart sophomore in college. With my second I had a fall too early in pregnancy and a fall at about 29 weeks and he is fine as well. With my third I fell down the stairs at about 34 weeks and he is fine and all were carried full term. The baby is very well protected. I am glad everything is alright.
