    Clumsiness

    UGH - just got through with the worst scare! I couldn't get my leg up high enough and tripped over my doggie gate and fell FLAT on my stomach! Knocked the wind out of myself, and definitely felt cramping in the stomach area.

    I immediately called my doctor and rushed to his office for a scan. Baby is fine, THANK GOODNESS! But I am ordered to relax tonight and count movement, watch for heavy bleeding and/or contractions!

    Just a reminder to everyone with a growing baby bump - take it easy, be careful and remember you are not as agile as you used to be!!!

    I definitely learned my lesson!!!

    I'm glad you both are ok!!

    I've been "off balance" a lot but haven't fallen - I have NEARLY fallen more times than I can count!! I was the clumsiest kid, it's a miracle that I haven't fallen yet!

    Thanks for reminding us all to be careful!!

    Thanks guys! baby is kicking and moving just fine this evening. I guess there is tons of padding in there for him.

    I have laid on the couch all afternoon since getting back from the Dr. and am just starting to feel the stiffness in my arm and leg, i guess from trying to take the brunt of the fall...

    I was in total shock this afternoon when it happened! Things had been going so well up until then, i guess it just taught me that I need to slow down, we're not in second trimester anymore! :)

    Take care of yourselves and see you on Monday for a much-needed relaxing lunch!
