CAT scan?

First - posted on 02/03/2015 ( no moms have responded yet )




I was having acute abdominal pain and the doctor sent me to the emergency room to have a CAT scan to rule out Appendicitis. They did a pregnancy test there and said I was not pregnant. That was about two weeks ago. Two days ago I missed my period. At this point I don't even know if I am pregnant, or how long I have been.
What affect does a cat scan have on the fetus? How long does the radiation linger? Unfortunately the scan was on my entire abdomen.
We just moved too, so I have to start all over with a Gyno which could take as long as two weeks.
