Is falling down in pregnancy due to lose in balance or weight?

I am 26.6 weeks pregnant, and I am 5 3 tall and weigh 176 lbs. I was overweight when I got pregnant. I recently fell down and landed on my back. I went to the hospital and was told my baby is okay. What do you think is the cause of my fall? Is it normal to lose your balance when your pregnant and is my weight a factor?

It seems that this was simply an accident, can happen with every body.
It is possible that due to overweight and some change in posture due to pregnancy might have caused some imbalance resulting your fall.
As your baby is fine, forget about to find out cause of fall.
Go for measuring your blood pressure.
Ok and take care.
