I'm 8 weeks pregnant and i have a 5 year old son who accidently kicked me in the stomach which made my stomach tender for a couple of days but i haven't been spotting or anything so I'm assuming the baby is ok...However, I read on youtube where getting hit in the stomach while pregnant can cause the baby to have brain damage which now has me concerned...My question is has anyone every expercinced something like this and if so how was the outcome?????

I wouldn't be too worried at 8weeks if ur not spotting considering ur baby is about a half an inch and surrounded by fluid.

your only 8 weeks....unless he kicked barely above your pubic bone, I"m sure you are fine. If you that concerned, bring it up at your next apt.

at 8 weeks your baby is quite protected with fluids and whatnot. I wouldn't worry.

My 5 year old tackles me and crawls all over me all the time. I'm 30 weeks...baby is normal.



At 8 weeks your baby is still under your pubic bone.



Get kicked and hit in the stomach WILL make you sore, but the baby is well protected in there.

At eight weeks baby isn't even above your pubic bone, so your son probably didn't even kick where the baby is.

So long as you are not spotting or anything of the sort, you should be fine.



I had been hit in the belly by a dog at work when I was between 4-6 weeks pregnant and I honestly thought I was going to miscarry if I was indeed pregnant since we didn't know for sure yet at the time, considering the fact that I had been getting sick that very day probably 2 1/2 hours after the hit to the belly and was unable to go to work the next day since the vomiting didn't want to let up. And he was fine :)



But if you are really concerned, call your OB and let them know your concerns and maybe they'll do an ultrasound to check on your little one.
