Pregnant, had a accidental hit below sternum, no breathing difficulty or bruising. Am I safe?

I am a teacher, and one of my students accidentally elbowed me right below my sternum (in the triangle area). It caught me off guard, however it did not leave any bruising or marks. I had no breathing difficulties or any thing. I am 10 weeks pregnant, so I am just wondering if it could have caused harm of any kind. I have heard it likely won t cause harm because there is enough cushion from the fluids and the point of impact was up to high.
