NO - unless the fall causes serious injury to you. This is especially true in early pregnancy. It is worth a mention to your Dr. nonetheless. If you start spotting or have any cramping (that you previously did not), you should contact your Dr. immediately. Yes. any kind of injury to the abdomen can cause miscarriage if severe enough. If you begin spotting or have any pain at all, call your Doctor immediately. It would probably be wise to inform your Doctor anyway. If you have not yet established with a Doctor, the sooner the better. It is highly unlikely you would do any harm as the uterus is still in the pelvis and therefore extremely well protected. Any pain or spotting is unlikely to be allied to the fall. there is not a lot the doctor can do about it anyway, it is a bit the case that 'what will be, will be' at this stage. Even later in pregnancy a fall is more likely to hurt you than the baby. It is possible yes but the baby is usually protected by the amniotic sac and this is very strong and protective towards the baby. But see your doctor to get checked over.

The baby is very well cushioned inside your body and will not be hurt by sex. In some cases, you may be told to avoid sex. This happens if there is already a problem with the pregnancy. Sex will not cause a problem, unless a complication already exists."Too much exercise can cause miscarriage."Many women avoid exercise during pregnancy out of fear the baby may be harmed. Exercise is actually very good for you and the baby. You should always ask your doctor about your particular routine and follow some safety rules, such as staying hydrated and not overdoing it. Again, if there are complications, you may be told to take it easy. But unless the pregnancy is already threatened, there is no harm in exercise."My negative thoughts caused the miscarriage."This is a very common misconception among women who have lost a baby. If the pregnancy was unplanned or you didn't feel ready for a baby, you may blame yourself if something goes wrong. Not being happy about finding out you were pregnant will not cause a miscarriage. Guilt feelings later are not productive and only cause needless suffering."Stress will cause a miscarriage."Stress doesn't cause miscarriages. Women often deal with stress during pregnancy. Even major stress, such as a death in the family or unemployment will not cause a miscarriage. Major trauma may contribute to preterm labor later in the pregnancy, but will not cause an early miscarriage. Typical stress or even major stress will not cause you to lose the baby."I didn't get enough nutrition."Poor nutrition in early pregnancy will not cause a miscarriage. Before you know you are pregnant, the baby has very little nutritional needs. If your diet isn't the best, it will not cause a miscarriage. The baby takes what it needs from your body. Your nutrition will suffer, not the baby's."I picked up my toddler too much."Lifting your children won't cause a miscarriage. Use care when lifting your other little ones to save your own back, not out of fear of harming the baby. Squat and use your leg muscles to lift. Even improper lifting won't hurt the baby.
