I was walking upstairs yesterday around 4pm and my foot slipped off the stair, so I fell stomach first onto the stairs and then slid down the next few. I called the advice line since I hit my stomach pretty hard and they wanted me in ASAP for monitoring (it's protocol for any pregnant woman that falls at my hospital). DH came home and drove me in...the girls were freaking out since they saw me fall. That made me sad Lily kept saying "I hope Tickle Monster (her name for the baby ) is okay and he doesn't fall out!"

So, I get to L&D around 5pm and they take me to their triage room and hooked me up. Baby wasn't moving, but they found his heartbeat right away. The nurse-midwife on duty was the one that delivered Lily and she remembered me - and Lily is 3.5 years old! She said she typically remembers all moms that go totally natural because they don't have a ton of them. I was contracting every 7-10 minutes but not very strongly. I drank some water and by 6pm the baby started getting super active. The nurse had to come sit with me because he kept going off the heartrate monitor since he was moving so much, so she had to hold it in place.

They just kept monitoring me and around 930pm a new doctor came in to see me. He looked like he could be DH's twin, it was freaky He did an u/s and baby boy showed of his family jewels immediately, then we saw him practice breathing and everything. He looked really good. Fluid levels were fine and placenta wasn't detached from the fall. The doctor did a cervical exam (which was awkward since DH was in the room and they seriously looked like twins) and cervix is still high and he said it was closed. We left right around 10pm since the contractions had stopped and today everything seems fine but my stomach is really sore from the fall, so I'm just taking it easy.

So glad baby looks great in there and that there doesn't appear to be any effects from the fall. Stairs scare me.

I hate having stairs because I fear falling on them. Glad you're okay.

Eeesh, the kind of thing we all hope never happens but SO glad you and baby are ok. I hope the girls get over the shock too - are you finding they want to keep talking about it? If so just go with it; Lily particularly will probably want to vocalise to process what she saw and how it made her feel.

All Lily wanted to know when I got home was that the baby was okay. And then she wanted to take the u/s pic that the doctor printed up to her room to add to her collection She keeps telling me to be careful on the stairs as well.
