    Hi, if there is no vaginal bleeding or uterine contraction pains every few minutes - all these are good signs. Also being able to feel the baby moving at normal frequency like before the incident is a good sign. No direct impact to the belly is also a good sign. Baby moving too often or less often than usual need to be addressed by your OBGYN doctor. The only way to be certain about the viability of the fetus and to rule out any minor or major complications like placental disruption and blood clot is to do a pelvic or vaginal ultrasound. Hope this helps. Let us know if you have any further questions.
