I was walking down a short set of stairs this morning that were wet from last nights rain and my foot slipped out form underneath me. I was holding the rail, but still went down hard onto my butt. I am not cramping or bleeding, but my baby is moving a lot more since then and my side and back are aching slightly. I think my back and side are aching because I was holding on pretty tight to the rail when I slipped and I may have pulled the muscles a little. I was just wondering if I should still let my doctor know that I fell??? if I should be seen anyway? any suggestions??
