Today I had a pretty good fall, I tripped on a hole in the road and landed on my knees, then hands, so no impact whatsoever on the tummy, but my husband nearly had a heart attack, poor guy. My knees are pretty torn up, though!
Anyone else have a fall yet? Be careful!

the scrapes on my knees still have a little left to go before they're completely healed, but haven't had another fall yet! Be careful ladies, we don't want our husbands to have heart attacks or wrap us in bubble wrap!

Im 30 weeks pregnant and i was walking in my backyard when i took a step off my porch into mud and slipped. I landed the same way you did. I wasn't real worried about my baby because i didn't land on her or anything.

We were at a water park about a month ago, and i was trying to step over a rock, while holding my 2 yr old, my foot missed and landed right on my hoo-ha. SO embarrassing! I was sore and scared to look down every time i went to the bathroom, luckily nothing happened!

I have fallen 3 times since I' ve been pregnant. I think I've gotten off balance a little. I have fallen out of a chair at work, out my fried car, and the worst fall was I slipped on some water anfand landed on my back. Since, I have been very careful in everything I do

I fell at around 21 weeks. I landed on my knees pretty good and they were pretty skinned up. I called the dr when I started having a few contractions and stayed laying down. Later the contractions came back and I went to the hospital. I ended up with an irritated uterus and stayed on my butt for a few days. Now I am at 26 weeks and have been uneventful since then. Always play it safe and if you have worries call your dr!

If you've cut them one good tip the hospital gave me was to use a lanolin (nipple cream) on them. Prevents them scabbing and hurting even more.

32 weeks, luckily I'm only at 26...the way I fell (and reacted mid-air) was so there was absolutely no bump to the tummy at all....honestly I think she gets more bumps and jostles from me bumping against the counter, table, etc when cooking or working! I think me and her are absolutely fine, but I'll be careful! (my knees really hurt though!)

I had a fall with my last pregnancy at 32 wks, chasing my toddler who decided to run across a busy road. Cut my knees and hands up a bit and a slight bump to the tummy, I ended up taking a trip to maternity to be checked out and monitored and while we were there I went into early labour. Luckily the hospital managed to stop the contractions and I ended up going 3 days over my due date and having a healthy baby girl - 9 lb 4 oz. You just have to be really careful and if unsure about anything get checked out.
