I love my dog but I don't want to look at him right now. We've been TTC for 3 years, finally pg after IVF, exactly at 8 weeks today.

I was having trouble sleeping and went in the other room. Invited dog up on the guest bed (which is lower than our main bed so he likes to get up on it). He declined. I fell asleep.

One hour later I was awoken by a blow to the groin. Dear doggy decided to jump up in bed with me and landed paw first between my hip bone and ovary. He weighs in at 63 pounds.

I hope the baby is ok. Fortunately I have an U/S scheduled later today so the doctor will be taking a look, but I'm terrified and don't think I can get back to sleep now.


Update. **** Good news. The little bean looked good today and the heartbeat was to 166 (up from 123 last week) and measuring just right for the 8 week mark. So, other than a few hours lost sleep, it seems no harm done. My DH is suggesting we keep the dog out of the guest room from now on when I go in there, which seems a good idea even though he loves that room. But that'll be the nursery so may as well get him used to not thinking it is his room!

Glad you are okay. I would possibly suggest using NILIF (nothing in life is free) with your dog and teaching him to not jump up on furniture unless invited. Neither of my dogs are allowed on any of our furniture and they respect that rule. Also, if your dog likes to jump on you during waking hours, I would suggest training now so that by the time baby gets here your pup will respect the rules.

Sounds like more of an accident than anything else and 9 times out of 10 baby is just fine. I wouldn't recommend sending your pup away over one incident that seems ot have been an accident. Typically with some good training and supervision problems can be avoided.

Best of luck with everything!

I am glad you are ok. We had a boxer during my first pregnancy and she liked to "box" me in my stomach. Despite my occasional dog bops my daughter was born healthy and perfect.

Ouch! Glad to hear that everything is okay. My dog likes to do the same, but he had a serious accident when she was a pup and has a "gimpy" right arm that she can't control very well. She loves to cuddle and there's no way I could disinvite her from the bed, but she really does hurt sometimes!
