Response to Will fragrance or a long walk cause early miscarriage? (m'c mentioned)
It is so hard to go through a mc. Heartbreaking. And since people (read: women and OBs) rarely talk about mc, we start to believe it will only happen to people who aren't "doing the right thing"...whether it be eating right, getting enough rest, taking enough p4, etc. So when we "do everything right" it's hard to understand why mc's happen.
Research studies have shown that m/c happens in upwards of 50-60% of pregnancies, not the "10%" that dumb web sites say. The majority of those were "doomed" from the beginning because of a genetic abnormality in the embryo that prevents it from developing.
You didn't do anything wrong. Taking a long walk keeps blood circulating and is good for you at all stages of pg. Taking a shower with a scented shampoo is not the same as "huffing" a scent and getting high from it.
Take care of yourself during the mc. And then you can start trying again right away. So sorry for your loss.
