I have almost fallen once this week, and I successfully fell this morning. The first time was totally my fault. I was being stupid and I tried to step over the baby gate we use to keep the dog out of the kitchen when we are cooking. My leg didn't quite make it over the gate, and I almost landed in a "splits" position. This morning was just a freak fall. I was walking the dog at 6:30 am and I was going to cut across the grass to make room for someone else walking on the sidewalk.
My left ankle hit a slight hole in the ground and it totally gave out on me. Luckily, I managed to avoid landing on my stomach. I pulled a few muscles in my pelvis, though, and I started to have some mild lower abdomen cramps afterwards. This was more of a hard fall, and it was uncomfortable. It's not the first time I've fallen during this pregnancy. Two or three weeks ago, I was walking downstairs and, when my left foot hit the ground, it just gave out on me. That was a much more gentle fall. It was like I fell in slow motion.
Anyhow, is anyone else feeling like gravity is the enemy? How many times have you fallen? If you did fall, did you go to the doctor? What did they say? When should I go to the doctor if I have fallen? I'm almost full term (will be this Saturday), so I'm a little worried that anything can set off labor.
