    I know I posted in Tri 2 but looking for anyone who has experience this also??


    I had my MIL's dog jump on me yesterday evening. He is between 6/7 stone - Labrador x Mastiff. Probably the size of a Rotti...
    He jumped from one sofa to the other, landing on my stomach and then used my bump as leverage to leap off again. I had a large pawprint and scratch when it happened, these faded after a bath. I was fine all night apart from it being tender to touch. Fine this morning, until i got myself and my toddler ready for work/nursery.... Since about 8:15AM I have been getting some cramping and dull aches, like I am going to start my period any minute. Its spreading through to my lower back now also. No spotting or bleeding though.

    I rang EPU this morning, the nurse only called back at 1:30PM and booked me in for an emergency scan for 10AM in the morning.
    The pain/aches are draining me now as I am sat in work.

    Has anyone else been through this or had something similar?
    Was your baby ok?

    My dog has done that a couple of times, but she's not so big, medium sized mongrel. I didn't have any pain though and baby was moving fine afterwards. Definitely get the scan for reassurance though - is your baby moving ok?

    My English bull terrier regularly jumped on me while I was pregnant. Only once did he land completely on me, it was tender to touch and I had a big deep scratch but everything was OK. Best to get it checked out Hun xxx

    I had a huge lurcher jump at me and crash straight into my bump at work when I was pregnant with my son.

    Obviously he didn't land his full weight on me, but it did hurt and knock the wind from me.

    Baby was just fine though.

    I hope all goes well at your scan tomorrow hun, I'm sure everything will be ok.

    At 15 weeks there ought to be enough fluid cushioning the baby that it's fine & well protected.
    It's still very small floating in a very (comparatively) large bag of waters.
    But hope the scan shows all is ok.

    I've had my dog and others jump at & onto my stomach but not with the force it sounds like your MIL's did.

    My poor eyesight - I thought your ticker said 25 weeks...
    Phoenix is right, they're so well cushioned in there, especially at that stage - hope the scan shows all is well x
