I am so upset now, on tuesday I had 1 dental x-ray to check a filling I had done a month ago that has been bothering me. On tuesday I was due for AF and I felt like it was coming, so I wasn't to concerned. Today, 4 days late I find out I'm pregnant, I feel like such an idiot, idiot, idiot. What if something happens to my baby, it will be all my fault. I can't stop thinking about what I have done. The reason the x-ray was taken was because the dentist thought I might have an abscess from the symptoms I described, but thank goodness it wasn't. So, at least I don't have to worry about further treatment. The only plus side to this is my dentist always uses 2 lead aprons on childbearing aged women. But, I feel awful, has anyone else had a similar experience, or could someone at least give me some hope. I feel terrible. :
everything is probably fine. my mom had an xray when she was pregnant in 1978 with me and my twin sister. (i guess this was before, when they did x-rays for everything)
anyway, my mom told the doc she thought she was having twins. he tried to say she was further along than she claimed to be. (but she knew when she'd had sex...) anyway, he didn't believe her and made her get an xray.
we're both fine. 28 years old. happily married w/ baby girls of our own.
and : congratulations.
Hey sarah about the xrays was this without a lead apron???
