Pregnant after a Loss

should I be worried?

 A half hour ago, my hubby and I were driving in the rain coming back from the grocery store and we were driving in the turn left lane, and someone who was in the straight lane decided they wanted to get in our lane without looking, so of course we had to SLAM on the brakes to not hit them, I screamed, and the seatbelt got really tight across my tummy. Now I have some slight cramping that I didnt have before, but nothing terrible. Do you think baby is okay? Am I just being paranoid? Do I need to do anything?

Re: should I be worried?

  • Do you have an after hours number you can call? It wouldn't hurt to check with them and make sure you shouldn't go in. If it were me I would for sure spend the rest of the day on the couch with my feet up and see if the cramping went away. Sorry about the scare, hope everything is fine! Good news is baby is pretty well protected in there so hopefully there was no harm done.

    This! Also make sure you are wearing your seatbelt really low. Just over your pelvic bone. It's safer for you and baby that way. As my belly has gotten bigger it's been easier to make sure I'm wearing it under my belly rather than across.

  • I don't think it would hurt to call just to give you peace of mind. Something similar happened to me on the way to my 12w appointment. DH had to slam on the breaks and it scared me. My appointment was fine, blood pressure good and the heartbeat good.

    All of that. I'm sorry that you had a scare.  Relax, sit on a comfy chair and put your feet up.  If they cramping continues or you have any spotting or if you are just still worried, it can't hurt to give the after hours nurse a call.

    I agree with this as well. I'm so sorry that you had to deal with this scare. ((hugs))

    Congratulations to all of my TTCAL Treehouse friends on their BFPs and Rainbow Babies!!
  • thanks ladies...the cramping seems to have mostly disappeared..I've sat my butt on the couch all afternoon. This would be a good time though for baby to decide to give me his/her first kicks. If I feel nervous int he morning still, I'll call the office. :-)
