Stress and its effect on the unborn baby

Can having a very heated verbal fight with my husband followed with screaming and yelling lead to a miscarriage? I am 17 weeks pregnant? Also, if it does not lead to a miscarriage how else may it effect the unborn baby?

welcome to healthcaremagic
any stress in antenatal period is harmful for both mother and unborn baby
severe strain in the form of stress involved in shouting fighting etc may cause disturbed pregnancy
it is proved that baby starts learning even in utero
be careful and avoid such ytings in future
