I was holding Drake going down the stairs and I missed a step toward the bottom and we tripped and I landed on my butt and I think I peed myself. Drake was hysterical and needed to be held by my husband and me. I think Im ok. Im a little worried but Im not even hurt, just a little shocked but nothing even hurts. I think it was at most 3-4 steps I might have fell down but maybe even less since my tailbone isnt even sore. Should I call someone? Who? My Dr? The hospital?. I want to feel baby move and Ill feel better I think

I took a nasty fall at work a month ago and DID pee myself. I didn't feel pain afterwards (except my ego was bruised). No cramps no bleeding. I just told myself if I had any bad symptoms that I would go to hospital. Have you felt baby move yet since fall? How regular were you feeling the baby? I pray all is well and please keep us updated. A wise mom told me there are lots of padding to protect the baby!

I took a nasty little fall a couple months ago. I tried to walk on a foot that fell asleep and it failed me, go figure. I slid from my feet onto my back and never hit my belly at all. I'll admit I never called the Dr or anything bc I fell on my backside, not the front. I'm sure the jolt is what you're afraid of having done the damage and I'm not telling you not to call someone, I'm just saying I wouldn't worry (as much) since it was your butt and not your belly.

I do hope everything is ok and KUP'd.

Also, I googled and found these experiences.

We have 4 dogs in the house and one is constantly running passed me and knocking me over...even broke a toe once. Doc said as long as I don'somersault down the stairs, land on my stomach or flat on my back I'll be OK.
Hope you're ok

So sorry to hear about your fall...glad you and Drake are OK. Did you fall on your belly?

With DS, I tripped, fell and landed smack on my belly 1/2 on the sidewalk curb, 1/2 on the asphalt of the street. I thought for sure that was it for me cause I was so early in my pregnancy. Well, obviously he's here =) I've def learned our belly's can take a beating!! This LO gets a daily smack or stepped on from DS at some point *roll eyes*
