Can stress really lead to miscarriage?

My husbands phone is off after a big fight yesterday. He lied to me and i told him id never trust him again all day I've tried contacting him and no response. Now I have shooting pain in both sides of my belly. Ahh I'm so upset i don't know what to do.

  • Stress caused my last MC. You should try any method you can think of to calm yourself and your body.

  • I think you should go to the hospital and no stress is not good for the baby. You may be having pains because of the stress

  • it's not healthy, but pregnancy itself is stress, no it normally does not cause spontaneous abortion

  • Yes it can cause miscarriage but usually it seems like its extended periods of stress. The women I know who have miscarried due to stress were stressed out over major things like foreclosure, or a big move. Hope everything turns out ok with you. I would call your doctor and let them know whats going on & how you are feeling just in case.

  • Yes, it can. It would have to be a great deal of stress though. Try and relax.
