Sorry Polka and sorry nanmama
Soooo, I went in for a scheduled mamogram~ my first one. I realized that after she had x-rayed one breast, that I was in the 2ww and this was a no no!! My heart was racing!!! The lady said 'are you ok?', and so I told her I was ttc, and she said 'we prefer not to do this if you think you may be pg!!!!'
I had to travel to the appt. in the early am, drop ds off with a friend, fight traffic, and..........she wants to know if I want to reschedule.
: I just didn't know what to do! We were half done! I am mad at my ob, because she shouldn't have had me go in either.
After talking to the caregiver there, she assured me that the x-rays scatter OUT, not down, because after all, they are interested in the upper body only. I did wear an apron after that first time.
Anyway, its probably a moot point because I'm not feeling pregnant.
This time I will feel a bit more OK with not being pg because of that. She said the same amount of radioactivity would be present if I went on an airplane and traveled, so I felt somewhat better.
Please reassure me.
