  • It could be anything... sometimes it's from heavy lifting, I heard it could be from strong fumes and sometimes I think things go wrong with the placenta/sac/baby... Maybe the next person will know more

  • i had 2 myself and they could not tell why it happened. i heard that most miscarriages are caused by frtal heart problems. the heart is not forming properly... its hard but for the best.....

  • I had three in a 9 month time frame, before I got pregnant with my now 20 month old daughter. For me they (my Dr's- general & Ob) found that I actually have a blood clotting disorder (that is genetic). It was found when they ran a BUNCH of test to find out why/what could have caused the miscarriages. The only thing I can really tell you is if you have had more than one in a short period of time start asking you OB to run tests; hormone, blood clotting, thyroid, etc. Best of Luck! Oh, once you have some answers, stop worrying that just makes it harder to get pregnant.

  • I dont think stress does..Its possible,depending I guess on how good the baby is in the placenta or something.. Because throughout my pregnancy I've been stressed on and off.. and sometimes severly.. And Im 21 weeks now,and everything is fine.I think it just depends on how well the baby is developing and how I guess strong the placenta is or something.. It varies from woman to woman what cause miscarriages.And also the lifting heavy,
