Took A Little Fall. Everything OK?

Postby SilverAngel679 » Sat Sep 27, 2008 4:33 pm

Hey ladies, I was just wondering if I could have your oppinion on something because I'm just a little worried.
This morning I had a job interview at a bridal boutique and as I walked through the store I didn't see a step that led to a raised platform and my foot cought it. Now I didn't fall violently or hard or anything. It was more of me just loosing my balance and falling to one knee which I wasn't able to keep my balance on either so I feel to the side on my hip/butt.
It all happened kind of slow and it wasn't violent like I said and I didn't fall on my belly at all but I'm a little worried because it was still a fall and it definatly jarred me.
I feel fine, didn't even hurt my knee or butt and my belly feels fine, but I'm 11 weeks 4 days with twins and I was just wondering if any of you have had the same expirience and what happened? Does any one think I should go get a sonogram just to make sure? I know I sound paranoid but I can't help it.
Any advice would be great. Thanks so much.

Hi Silver,

I had a similar experience when I was about 22 weeks pregnant. I missed the last step in our house and fell to my knees (my belly never touched the ground) and hands. I called my doctor just to be on the safe side and they said their protocol was to admit me to labor and delivery for four hours of monitoring and an ultrasound just to make sure the placenta didn't detach. Everything turned out just fine for me and I was very surprised that they made me come in. I would check with your doctor or whoever is on call over the weekend just to be sure. I am sure you are fine, but peace of mind is a wonderful thing. Keep us posted.
