Falls and early pregnancy

I just took a fall tonight. It was raining out and I was walking fast after my husband (We had been in a MILDLY warm hot tub. the heater had been off for several hrs. maybe 95-98degree water) and I slipped and landed on my right buttock/hip and arm. I did NOT hit my stomach or land straight on my rear.
I am currently 8+ weeks pregnant, and my pregnancy has already been verified Viable. We saw a heartbeat @ 5weeks6days, and got a true measured heartrate @nearly 7 weeks. 125bpm.

Right now I'm not having cramping, nor any bleeding, just  a little pain like I stretched something in my lower right abdomen. (feels like the Round Ligament pain I was having earlier in the evening)

I'm not able to get to my doctor's for a week, but want to be sure everything should be ok. I've read that a womans is usually very cushioning during pregnancy.
Thank you,

Hm I've never heard of being very cushioning during preggers. Interesting the things you learn while being on an online helping site. lol

I hope everything is ok with your baby.  I'd say if you get bleeding or horrible cramps then you should go to an ER or something.

best of luck to u kk  :-)
