5 Weeks Pregnant And Slipped On the Ice

I just slipped on the ice and landed on my bottom and hit my head. Is my baby going to be ok??? I'm so scared I'll lose the baby! Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Ask your Dr but I slipped and fell on my butt pretty good around 19 weeks and my baby is fine. I never even asked my Dr I just wasn't too concerned but he is still kicking away in there and his heartbeat is good so I never really worried about it. Your baby is very cushioned especially right now. He/she is tiny. Is there any bleeding? Loss of fluids? Pain?

I would say you're fine, but get checked just in case (if for nothing else, a possible head injury since you say you hit your head too). Those little beans are quite tough. Most of the time, a fall like that doesn't phase them.

i fell really bad at home in the kitchen and landed so hard on my tail I cracked my tail bone. I went into the DR and the checked me, babys heart beat and stuff. I was 9 weeks then I am now 13 weeks.

But you should always call ur DR when you take a fall you will talk to a nurse and she will talk to the DR and will prob have you come in. But I would say that you will be ok.

Let us know what they say.

Like the others said i'm sure everthing is fine. But i would just check in with the doc if not for the baby, but for yourself. The baby is still really small, and i'm sure he/shes ok. I hope everything turns out ok for you!
