I had a CT scan done at 11 weeks in the ER the DR thought I might have a PE but he was wrong I only had bronchitis. But the scan was done and now I'm worried about what effects it might have on my baby. Can anyone please tell me if this or something similar has happened to you and what was the outcome. I keep reading that CT scans are bad for the baby but I can't find any real stories from mothers. PLEASE HELP ME!!!

I just spoke to my hubby who does CTs for a living. While it is not ideal to have a CT in you first trimester, he said the likelihood of the one time dose of radiation harming the baby is very, very slim. The machinery used today has very fine beams of radiation that are directed right at the area of examination. Rest easy.
