My husband and I argued last night and he yelled at me which caused me some stress. I'm 9 1/2 weeks pregnant. Could this cause a miscarriage?

  • If that is all it took to cause a miscarriage the world would have ended by now.
    Extreme stress can cause a miscarriage, but it's unlikely an argument is enough to do it.

  • My hubby and I have argued a lot lately; and I mean A LOT! I am probably one of the most stressed out people that exist. (I have an anxiety disorder, for which I refuse to take crazy meds for...) I worry constantly, stress out easily, and frustrate easily as well. I am preggers and have not had any issues; although I am sure it can happen, likely not.

  • I wouldn't be pregnant right now if it did. My hubby doesn't yell but, my SS is a very angry child and he can mean and violent and I am his only caregiver so, if that was all it took then I would have miscarried by now.

  • Oh honey...I have been more stressed during this pregnancy than any other time in my life. I'm 29 weeks along and I've got a perfectly healthy bouncing baby girl rolling around inside of me. EVERYONE gets stressed during pregnancy, and the heightened hormone levels don't help at all. I find that drinking (safe) herbal teas and taking nice warm showers really really helps.
