fell and hit slightly on my belly at 19 wks? is baby safe?

User Profile
I am 19 weeks pregnant. I fell down while getting off the train and hit my left knee. Also, I hit slightly on my belly. Will it cause harm to my baby? Should I get an ultrasound done to know more? I am not feeling any pain in my stomach and no bleeding is there.

Welcome to ehealthforum,
If there is no abdominal pain/uterine contractions, no bleeding/spotting, then it can be considered as fine. However if worried, you may consider getting an ultrasound scan done to look for fetal wellbeing and to rule out any retroplacental bleeding/clot due to injury. The ultrasound scan done at this time will also help to rule out any anomalies in the baby. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet.
Take care.
