Jump on you on purpose, no. Should you worry about every bump? absolutely not! babies are well protected inside the uterus and while impacts with greater force or focus can be harmful, it's not usually of too much concern. I had my little man bounce on me and bump into my tummy numerous times while pregnant with my daughter, along with my dogs accidentally kicking my belly a few times and while some of those were pretty powerful nothing was wrong. If you are a high risk pregnancy, later on then definitely limit the amount of bumps you're receiving. If you're concerned, talk to your doctor.

CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR PREGNANCY!
Do not let your little one or anyone jump on your stomach while pregnant. I found this article on-line, http://www.amazingpregnancy.com/pregnanc...
Blunt trauma to the abdomen while you are pregnant can be of great concern. You may worry about the possibility of miscarriage or damage to the baby. Fortunately, at least in the first trimester, the uterus is still securely inside of the pelvis, protected by the pelvis bones. This makes the risk of injury during the first trimester very remote, though not impossible. During the second trimester, the fetus is still fairly well protected inside a relatively generous amount of amniotic fluid, although the uterus itself is susceptible to direct impact at this point. The third trimester contains the most risk for blunt trauma, as the uterine wall is thin and the uterus is large.
Either way check with your doctor just to be on the safe side.
