Bumpy ride in pregnancy. now having small pain in left side of lower stomach. Shd i be worried?

Posted on: February 19, 2010


I had to travel and took a bumpy ride in a bus for a few minutes. the road was really bad. May be its my worry but i hve very little pain like feeling in my left lower stomach. There is NO discharge or any other complication as such thank god.
Do you think so I shd be worried. Or the pain is normal? Could the kid be harmed anyway in such cases? I am 13 and a half weeks pregnant.

 Answers

No worries whatsoever. Your little one is completely protected in a liquid pouch that protects, insulates and nourishes him/her. This is why you can have intercourse the entire pregnancy (or at least until 8 months when size gets in the way).

My wife asked the same question for our first child — the doctor said no way, unless you are in a serious crash, etc.

Get your sleep now — you will need it when junior arrives!

  • As our obstetrician used to say, there is very little you can do to endanger your baby as he or she is well insulated against shock in a bubble of water – especially this early in pregnancy. Your baby was probably quite amused by the motion and then fell right back asleep.

    The only thing he advised my wife against was continuing Tae-Kwon-Do during pregnancy due to the risk of getting kicked in the stomach.

    Be more aware of other dangers: Caffeine, smoking and alcohol. Especially the latter two carry significant risks for the baby. Also, any medication, especially herbal remedies, should be cleared with your doctor.
