In brief: Posible but unlikely

While extreme and severe physical and mental stress may contribute to pregnancy loss, the more common day-to-day stress is unlikely to result in pregnancy loss.

In brief: Rarely

It is true that stress increases the risk of miscarriage, but a quick brief stressful episode is not likely to do this.
