Pregnant after a Loss

PGAL brain - Slipped down the stairs

Hey ladies!

Ok I know I'm probably overreacting here but I'm kind of freaking out and PGAL brain isn't helping. I am 15.5 weeks and I was walking down the carpeted stairs with socks on and slipped down a few stairs. I didn't land on my belly and caught myself with my feet and hands (landing on my butt) but I'm worried. I just checked him on the doppler and his heart is beating but I feel so guilty and can't help thinking I hurt him. Realistically I know that he is well cushioned in there and that it's a good thing I didn't land on my belly. Please talk me off the ledge. Has this happened to any of you and everything was OK? I don't have cramping or bleeding/spotting. Thanks and sorry for my crazy.

  • Just rest, monitor for bleeding cramping,  yup he is well padded.  I know I have heard others stating they have fallen and all was ok.  You can always call your dr tomorrow to ask them especially if you are really worried.

    This.

    And - for reassurance - I fell in ice twice - landing on hip/butt both times - which sounds similar to your fall in impact - once probably around 17 or 18 weeks once maybe 24 or 28 and my little girl is in my arms now and a-ok. But calling to check is still a good idea - I didn't b/c I had an u/s the next day anyway but got told I should have. Well that wad the second fall which was harder - the first one I didn't tell anyone about about until now.

  • When I was pregnant with my daughter I fell down an embankment around 14 weeks.  It was maybe 4 feet and I landed/slid on hands and knees (a ridiculous story, actually...I got scared because I saw a snake and in running away my sunhat came down over my eyes so I couldn't see where I was going...fail all around).  She was fine--I of course was a total mess, so I understand how you are feeling.  It's great that you heard the heartbeat and have no bleeding or cramping!
  • Thanks so much everyone!! I'm taking it easy tonight. I really appreciate your comments. I was feeling pretty positive and then bam that happened so it really shook me up.
  • Scary, for sure! Rest up and if you need reassurance, call the doc in the morning. :)

    Sorry about your fall, I'd be worried too.  I'd give your dr a call to let them know just in case, but I'm sure it's fine!

  • Thanks so much ladies! I'm doing fine today. No cramping or bleeding and doppler checked him last night and this morning and his heart is beating away.
