Accidental...: ...Impacts from collisions between people aren't what we worry about. Intentional battery is a whole lot worse, and more common than most people think. If that's what's going on, get help immediately.

OB: Would suggest talking to your ob. Even if the fetal movement are ok, they may have to review the pregnancy with an ultrasound. If this 'hitting accidentally' has been multiple times, would suggest getting help from spousal abuse team in social services or mention it to the doctor you see.
