Ahhhhhhhhhhhh Iam way late.

I have no idea what I am suppose to do. I can't test for some reason my hcg levels take almost two week to get where they should be. I am scared cause I went to the dentist and they did x-rays. Is that going to affect the baby? I will keep it regardless but I am nervous that it may harm it. I am also on vit D is that going to harm it?> Need answers?

  • call your ob, the dentist should've shielded your pelvic area.

  • Vit D will do no harm. The X-rays...standard shielding should have covered you just fine. RELAX. If you are pregnant, then things are what they are and worry will do nothing but turn your hair gray.

  • You're probably fine. I wouldn't worry too much. If you're late, take a pregnancy test. If it comes out negative, Patient First can give you a blood test.

  • Unless your dentist has ancient x-ray equipment, I wouldn't be too worried. The newer equipment has very low radiation, and a great directional focus.

  • The newest xray equipment is fine when you are pregnant, don't worry too much!
