I slipped i catched my self and my knee took

Patient

Q: I slipped i catched my self and my knee took the fall im 23 weeks pregnant did i hurt my baby? should i go to the ER?

Doctor

A:   Hi,
Thanks for the query.

I understand your concern.
As there is no direct hurt to abdomen the possibility of baby getting affected is less.
Usually amniotic fluid around the baby will protect from external hurts to some extent.
But better to undergo regular checkup once along with ultrasound to confirm the wellbeing of the baby.

Take care
