Can I hurt my baby by pushing on my belly?

During my last appointment, our baby girl had worn herself out kickboxing in the waiting room. So when we did the ultrasound, she was not interested in moving much at all, and was laying in a way that made getting measurements difficult. Our ultrasound tech started poking me in the belly with the wand, fairly hard! It worked a little and she rolled a bit, but the pokes were hard enough that I felt like my belly should be bruised the next day (admittedly, I'm used to bruising at nothing, so YMMV). I can't imagine she would have pushed so much if it had been a dangerous thing to do.
I also get a kick out of poking Baby Girl back when she kicks me.
Thanks to Bokkechick for the lovely siggie.
