I fell on my stomach at 6 ok?

User Profile
My fiance and I were fooling around with each other and I accidentally pulled him into my stomach hard enough to knock myself over... I'm 6 months pregnant and I'm really starting to worry that I may have hurt the baby... I have felt her move but she doesnt move as frequently as she did before... What do I do?

Welcome to ehealthforum.
Do not worry. As long as you do not start having cramps, spotting, back pain etc, there should not be reason to worry. Keep daily fetal kick count. Lie down comfortably and when you are relaxed, start counting the movements. The baby should be having movements about 6-10 times in an hour. The movements normaly also come down as the baby grows due to lack of space in the uterus and baby filling the most of the space inside.
If you are still very worried, or if the kick count is lower than suggested, then visit your obstetrician at the earliest for an ultrasound scan to look for fetal well being and to rule out any placental or retroplacental problems.
Hope this helps. Take care.
