Q&A: I'm pregnant and hit the car door against my belly. Should I be worried?
The other day while I was getting out of my car, I misjudged the size of my belly and hit the car door against my belly while I was closing the door. I now have a bruise on my belly about the size of a penny. I have been feeling the baby moving, so I think its OK. My belly hurt when I hit it, but after that it didn't and still doesn't hurt. Should I be worried?
Your baby should be fine especially if you have felt movement and have not had any pain. Remember, your baby is surrounded by fluid and protected by your body. Things that may hurt you will not even be felt by the baby. Tell your OB about the incident so he/she can further ease your mind.
