Get off the computer and call your doctor! You should be fine but better safe than sorry!

hmm...don't know. It's your call on what you think is right. Just call your doctor just in case. Even though you feel ok, falling can sometimes cause the placenta to detach from the uterus. When I got in a car accident at 28 weeks, i felt perfectly fine but they still wanted to monitor me overnight just to make sure everything was ok.

I fell down at about 38 sweeks. Down a whole flight of stairs on my butt. I called the doctor and he had be come in just to be monitored for a bit. It gave me a sense of assurance and who doesn't like to be babied for a bit.

You might want to call your doctor just to see what their preference is.

Lol I fell off a curb when I was like 38 weeks or so... I didn't land on my stomach, I just landed on my knees and I didn't feel like anything was wrong and I turned out ok... So as long as you didn't feel like roughed up or anything after you fell it should be ok.

Call your doc, they will probably want you to go into L&D to be monitored, just to be on the safe side. I took a tumble down the stairs not to long ago and I had to go in.

Call and get checked out. Any force can cause the placenta to pull away from the uterus. So get checked!
