    Fell on the ice..
    hsabey posted:
    I am 32 weeks and fell on the ice yesterday afternoon while carrying my 3 year old. I fell on my right side and not long after I noticed a pain on my right side below my belly. A few hours later I noticed some slight cramping. I took a warm bath and it seemed to go away. But I noticed it again when I woke up in the middle of the night and it was still there when I awoke this morning. The cramping was also accompanied by some pressure down there and through out the day I noticed quite a bit of back pain with the cramping.
    I called my doctor last night after the fall, before the cramping started, but had to leave a message with the answering service and never got a call back. Is the because of the fall? Should I go in to the hospital? It is quite uncomfortable, but I hate to over react.

    If there is any question in your mind, go! There is no such thing as over-reacting. For crying out loud, the stress of getting scared as you were falling could be enough to get something started. Maybe I'm overly paranoid myself... but I'd rather go get thrown on the monitors and put my own mind at ease than drive myself crazy wondering what might be going on. Good Luck... let us know.

    I ended up going in Monday night becasue the pains had gotten worse with contractions. Good thing I did, contractions were 2-3 minutes apart. They did an ultrasound and everything is fine but they are officially concerned about preterm labor. They said the fall doesn't seem to have done much though.

    Yes. So what if you overreact. You are not the first and you will not be the last. Take care of you and your baby. The nurses, receptionist and the doctors will be alright.
