CAT scans and pregnancy, anyone have experience?

To start off, I have had two past odd short periods. Both were very heavy one day only. I just assumed it was due to recently weaning my baby. I have been in a lot of pain, especially in my back around my kidneys. I just knew I had a UTI and went to the ER. I had a CAT scan done, no injections just the scan. They didn't see any infection in my kidneys. But they did see a little swelling. I was told it was just a UTI. I was given antibiotics that I haven't started (dumb I know, I just hate medicine) but I am taking pain meds, Ibuprofen 800mg.

So today, I felt very nauseous and tired. I took a pregnancy test , 4 actually and different brands. Every single one, positive. I am concerned about having the CAT scan now. I am having some random brown spotting. Anybody ever had a CAT scan and no complications with your baby or pregnancy afterwards?? I'm so worried!!

They did! :( But they asked if I was pregnant before the scan, I was in serious pain and they rushed me back quite rapidly.

Well there isn't really much they can do any way.

Your baby will have a 1 out of 1,000 greater chance of developing childhood cancer. Besides that, it looks like no greater risk.

Nothing about being an ass, just nothing they can do unless you are 22+ weeks.

They really can't do anything for your pregnancy but watch your levels.

It's just a waiting game. I'd be requesting to have a detailed list of medications we were given.. including making sure that antibiotic is safe, which you will want to start like yesterday if it is.

List of medicines to make sure dr is able to watch for genetic issues that the medicine might cause.

UTI's can cause miscarriage if left untreated.
