A 19-year-old female asked:

Is lifting heavy object, too much stress can abort a 1 month fetus?

Probably not: The normal lifting that is done around the house won't cause a miscarriage at 1 month. I wouldn't recommend more extreme types of lifting such as weight-lifting, bench pressing, etc. Lifting a laundry basket won't hurt the baby but squating with 120 pounds of iron might. Best wishes!

No: I am sorry for your loss. Early miscarriage is caused y something abnormal about the pregnancy, not this type of activity.
