  • You have to take care of yourself when you're pregnant! That includes your spirit! If something is stressing you out, find a way to get rid of it. If its a person, explain to them that whatever they're doing is stressing you out, and they need to knock it off or get the hell away from you. (This includes your SO) If you are a Christian, pray for peace, and trust that He'll take care of you AND the baby!!!

  • If it dosen't make you have a misscariage then it can do something with the placenta. This was with my first pregnancy so i don't remember everything but when i had an US it showed white spots on the placenta and that was most likely from stress and could harm the baby. so i just found ways that worked for me to calm the stress and the next US things were a little better.

  • I'm sure it can, but I would think it would have to be an excessive amount of stress, when I was expecting my 2nd child my husband committed suicide....that was very stressful for me, needless to say....I was worried I would miscarry...I didn't, thank God, my son is now 24 years old!

  • It happened to me.  I was having a boy and I have a high normal testosterone, so the  added testosterone in my system made me rage.  I would rage all day towards my husband all day and he mentally and emotionally abused me.  I was incredibly stressed everyday and even explained to him that stressing me out can cause problems with the baby.  I ended up miscarrying at 12 wks.
