One time, i need to process a very important paper and i was walking with a 3 inches heels walking from one building to the other for the whole day just to fix personal papers. then when i got home i feel that my lower back was so heavy and painful and i even put pillow underneath coz its very painful then the next day when i wake up i saw blood and only to realize that im having my period. im 4 days due for my period and i already experiencing symptoms for pregnancy, like feeling dizzy, vomiting or nausea. My friends and hubby told me that i supposed to be pregnant but i just got miscarriage maybe because i was walking the whole day with the heels thats why. is it miscarriage already? just 4 days due? my hubby was so angry though i told him i will take care next time.

If your trying to conceive, then you should know that wearing heels also would not be good for you. Aside from that, did you missed your period? to confirm already that it was a miscarriage. Miscarriage if you have already missed your period for one week time, not just only three days to four days, it will be just a delay of menstruation. If you happen to notice that your heavily bleeding and there is bulk of blood coming out, chances are, that is miscarriage assuming that you have missed your period as I have mentioned above. But if not, then it was just a delay of period. If you want to clear your conscience, then just try to see your OB-Gyne Doctor and she will know what to advice you. Happy Mylotting.

If you suspect that you have miscarried, it may be worth seeing a doctor to make sure all is well. Miscarriage of a first pregnancy is very common and there is usually no specific cause so, even if this has happened to you, it was probably unavoidable and you did nothing to cause it. Its a shame that your husband's reaction was anger at a time when his support for you would have been more appropriate (IMHO)

First walking in heels has no effect on a pregnancy other then to hurt your back a little more. Stress can cause your period to be early or late and pregnancy symptoms can occur during PMS, which rally isn't a joke. A period can start early at any given time.

For me that is not miscarriage and maybe a plain period. I too experience diarrhea, vomiting, back ache, head ache, bloating and even painful on my upper sides. The symptoms you experience is normal period. As miscarriage happen before the sixth week since the woman's last menstrual period and your pelvic areas is the one who first experience the pain.

Maybe, but our bodies are so complex that even these signs are not a certain indicator that it is this. Sometimes you can actually see some blood due to the baby implanting itself in the walls of your uterus. Usually you dont have noticable signs this early. Nausea can come on quickly but not usually untill after the first week. But everyone is different. I have had 4 children. I did have one thing that your friends and hubby may be refering to. My body did abort a baby once. It was called a spontanious abortion. Sounds awful. Nothing that I did myself, the baby just didnt stay. Usually its our bodies natural way of releasing a baby that was not healthy. No walking around doing regular stuff should make your body lose a baby. We are made a lot more durable to carry a baby than that.

If you are trying to conceive it would be better to consult a doctor for any unusual symptoms that you feel. It could be a chemical pregnancy, which means that you got pregnant but had miscarriage just on the same time when your period is due. Most of the woman don't realize that they just had miscarriage and thought it was just a heavier period. So there was a possibility that you had a chemical pregnancy.

Hi, homeshoppers, I hope you are good I have a similar experience. I recently suffered an upset that has shaken me more than I would admit to my family. I was 2 weeks delayed so my husband bought me a pregnancy test kit. I got the 2 lines which means positive. We decided to schedule a visit to the doctor the next weekend. Before that time came however, I had some spotting so I immediately went to the doctor without waiting for the weekend. Well, my OB-Gyne explained that I had a common and "undocumented" case of miscarriage. As she explained, the egg and sperm cells have met at the fallopian tube but was not able to successfully travel down to form a fetus. She said, I was ok, no harm was done and no life was actually lost. If ever you had the same experience, I think it was nobody's fault, especially not yours! No one wants this kind of thing to happen to anyone. It was just one of those things that happens in coincidence. Hey, there are a lot high-heel wearing women who get pregnant. Take care of yourself

First off, if you did happen to have a miscarriage, it's not because you were walking. In fact walking is really good for you to do during pregnancy. You have to go to a doctor to know for sure that you were even pregnant. It is possible to miscarry before even knowing that you are pregnant. I would take a pregnancy test next time you are late and then you will know what is going on and not have to guess. Good luck!

It could be a miscarriage but I would see a docotr first. It could simply be your period, my best friend's mom always had really bad periods like that in the beginning of her pregnancy. Seriously she was constantly having severe lower back pain, vomiting and all that stuff. She thought that she had miscarried too, but turns out he was just having bad periods. but definitely check with your doctor, he or she should be able to tell you.

You could have experienced a miscarriage. It is possible but there is no way to know without seeing a doctor. Even then, I'm not sure a doctor could really tell that early on. It could also be simply that you were just having your period and that your back ache and nausea were symptoms of something entirely unrelated. There are so so many other things it could possibly be that I don't think I would just assume it to be a miscarriage.
