Dog Jumping on me while pregnant

I know this might sound silly, but I am concerned about how my dog jumps up at me and on me at the momemt. I am 28 Weeks preganant, and my dog has jumped on my stomach a number of times. Other than being pretty sore and uncomfortable, is this detrimental to the baby, or is he well protected enough (dog weighs 10kg)

It is unlikely any harm would come to baby but I suggest you minimise the exercise

Hi Blaze, I have the same problem although mine only weighs 4 kg. I asked my gynae and she said to be carefull, but that the baby is very protected in the amniotic fluid. She was more concerned about hygiene as mine are yorkshire terriers and lives in the house (they are our kids and it is going to be something else once the baby is there, as they think they are human). I am 23 weeks.

Enjoy and take care
