Mrs Q took a tumble.
Mrs Q fell over on the ice at the back door, even after me sticking a note on it saying don’t go out that door for now and telling her.
Needless to say, she went straight down on her bum.
Should we be worried about the baby (bump) or not? She says she is fine and just hurt her bum a bit, baby is moving still and active.
I have no idea, the concerned side says go to doctor to be sure, realistic side says that it is probably ok.
STW input please.Posted 7 years agoMountainMonkeyMember
If the baby is moving he/she is fine I’m sure – they’re very well protected in there. For your and Mrs. Q’s peace of mind though, why not ring the midwife so that she can tell you the same. I never had a fall with my bump but towards the end did open doors into it on numerous occasions!
Hope her bum is alright too!
EDIT – I wouldn’t bother with NHS direct – call your Midwife.Posted 7 years agoMargeMember
My lady learnt to snowboard whilst pregnant with our eldest, including falling hard enough to tear some shoulder ligaments.
In retrospect it was stupid & the vacation had been booked long in advance & was expensive…
Amazingly well protected by nature fortunately but if she is concerned it’s worth the re-assurance of a medical check over just to reduce the nerves…Posted 7 years agoMark NMember

My mother fell off her bike when heavily pregnant with me. I am sure it did no harm
The jury may still be out on that 😉
B and Q, Home base or even your decent local high street hardware store may have some rock salt. The trouble is demand will be high so may not have it in. I have used straight table salt from supermarket at a push.
I hope bump and bum are okay.Posted 7 years agoMental MickeyMember
Should’ve got her some of these….Posted 7 years ago
i bought 75kgs of rock salt from Ebay, 28 quid delivered tomorrow evening.
Picked up 6kg of table salt at netto for 23p per kg.
After deicing last night it’s easy to see why she thought it was ok to walk along the path, ice sheet was about 2m long and 1m wide, you couldn’t really see it was there.Posted 7 years ago
