that's not good heavy things doesnt necessary means m/c but it is not good you know..I was told by my doctor not to lift anything heavier than a gallon of milk but I have a history of M/C laydown for a little bit if you can.
I can't say for sure that it is totally impossible but it is highly highly unlikely.
Having said that, all your ligaments and muscles and stuff are not the same when you are pregnant, so to avoid hurting yourself try not to lift anything you can't easily manage in future. If the pain goes away, I would be almost certain there is nothing wrong.
The embryo is well protected behind your pelvis and anyway, most miscarriages are caused by chromosomal defects, not something the woman did or didn't do. Other causes are blood disorders and similar conditions that are outside of your control.
Unless you are smoking, heavy drinking, or taking drugs, you can neither cause nor prevent a miscarriage.
Women with toddlers manage to lift them when they are pregnant and if you do have another small child, you don't have much choice.
That said, take it easy and don't do heavy stuff like shifting furniture.
Lifting heavy things that you aren't used to can cause miscarriage but I wouldn't necessarily worry. I lift heavy things at work every morning so my body is used to it. However, since becoming pregnant, I have stopped lifting items that are stupidly heavy (like 6/8 packs of 2litre drinks) or awkward (large boxes containing 16 boxes of cereal). If you're concerned go to your doctor or A&E.xox
I agree with the other ladies, my work involves lots of heavy lifting, so I have to ensure I am doing it correctly, but as it is something I am used to, it wouldn't be harmful to my baby.
If you do need to lift something, keep your back straight and bend your knees - Don't stoop to pick anything up. Keep the item close to you at all times and do not twist your body whilst carrying it. And, if there is some form of trolley - use it!
