  • My sis in law is a dental assistant.. she said x-rays are not recommended, but this early on you should be fine.

    BTW- I sprained my ankle and recieved x-rays, then re-sprained it (ouch) two weeks later and recieved more x-rays- a week after that I found out I was 5 weeks pregnant.

    My baby is healthy and happy.

  • I was 8 months pregnant and had to get dental work done. It is completly harmless. They just dont want you to get too stressed cause thats not good on the baby being that far along. X-Rays are not recomended but as long as the Dr. Protected your belly u will be fine. My Dr. put on like 3 of those bib things to do my xray

  • Don't worry, just avoid them from now on. If they are necessary again, discuss it with your doctor first.
