So today I went to turn on the hose outside, when I got to the second last stair I fell into the stair railing pretty hard and hit my stomach then fell and hit the side of my hip. My stomach bruised immediately and now it aches but I am feeling okay!! Where I hit my stomach is about a inch and a half above my belly button. Should I be worried I just hit 16 weeks???
Probably nothing to worry about. Baby is pretty well protected in there. Basically, in order to do any serious damage you will have had to hit your belly hard enough to damage your own internal organs. But if you're worried about it, or if you feel any deep pains, you should check with your doctor.
If you hit yourself in the abdomen hard enough to bruise yourself, you need to see a doctor- pregnant or not. Look at all the people who get in car accidents and go home thinking they are fine but end up with internal bleeding from the seatbelt. Get checked out!
