Fell down - pregnant and really worried

Hi there - sitting here and just want to cry. My chair just slipped out from underneath me and I fell quite hard on my bum. I am now 13 weeks pregnant, and scared as hell. What must I do? Should I make an appointment to see my Doctor? Thanks.

A fall on your bottom should not affect the pregnancy. If there is any bleeding or pain, see your doctor, otherwise it should not be necessary.

Go and see the doc anyway... don't stress until you've been to the doc

Don't cry :-( It doesn't sound like the type of fall that would harm your pregnancy. Phone your doctor's rooms and ask to see the doctor. Better check it out and make sure - for your own peace of mind. But I think you will be fine.

Dear Mc

No matter what any of us say, you will only feel relief if you go see your doc anyway. So if I were you, just if its to put my mind at rest I would go. Rather be safe than sorry.
It doesnt sound like a bad fall or anything, but rather just have it checked out, you'll feel better.
