I don't believe so. A hard blow to the stomach such as when one is "beaten up" could cause a miscarriage.
I THINK SOCan being punched in the stomach while pregnant cause a miscarriage?
NO NOT REALY UNLESS U BEING ABUSEDWhy does my stomach feel so hard?
It's very unlikely, especially during the first trimester. The fetus is quite well protected through several layers of flesh and fat, and then in a thick womb surrounded by amniotic fluid.
I would be more concerned about your doctor's advice ... push the food down? Ridiculous.
