I had a miscarriage in June, and even though doctors do not believe that a miscarriage can be caused by stress, exercise or sex, I trully believe that my micarriage happened due to a terrible scare. It is too much of a coincidence that a day before I miscarried I got really scared because I had my 3yr old son in a shopping cart and my 5yr old son tried to turn the cart and ended up flipping and fell side ways, I got really scared thinking my sons head had hit the hard floor, but thank God nothing major happened, he only had a scratch on his back caused by the cart. Any how, as soon as this incident happend I got a terrible headache that would not go away, and the next day my miscarriage happened, and the headache did not go away until about 2 weeks after my miscarriage. Is there anyone out there that went through a similar situation? And do you believe my carriage could've happened due to that scare?

I am currently having a miscarriage and feel the same way you do. We live in northern NJ and Hurricane Sandy just make her way through. I was petrified that night of the storm and the wind was crazy...I was worried for my 3yr old and 13mth old's safety and my mother works night shift and was driving in the storm. We lost heat and electricity (we were very lucky). I got a terrible headache that wouldn't go away and started bleeding two days later. Went to ER and since I am only 7 weeks they could not tell if the pregnancy is still active. I have to see my OBGYN tomorrow to get more blood work done. I do feel like the stress of the storm caused this.
