I am currently about 8 weeks pregnent with my second child and my daughter Candace (about 15months old) keeps jumping on my stomach, she doesnt understand yet that there is a baby in there that she may hurt but im worried that she could do unintentional harm.. is it possible for her to hurt thr baby and how should i get her to stop?

My daughter would do the same. I would just continually take her off of me and tell her that it hurt (which it did). I also make sure to put myself in a position where she couldn't easily jump on me. After a point she lost interest, especially after I started showing.

My son did the same. I think it's more common than not. I worried alot too whether or not baby was ok. I wouldn't worry too much. They do have a lot of protection. Just gently tell her it hurts or be careful bubs is in mummies belly. Just be persistant.
