h__lo ! i'm just wondering if anyone has knowledge of dental x-rays effecting low birth-weights ? i might be prego, but only 3 dpo, so who really knows and just had dental x-rays. could this be a problem or is it too early considering i haven't even implanted yet if i was ?

I'm not sure considering how early you would be if you were. but one time at the dentist the x ray person said that whenever she x rays pregnant women that she makes sure they are extra protected. The technician herself was pregnant too. Also one time I had to get an x ray of my chest and the lady asked if I was pregnant, I told her I didn't know. She asked if I was late for my period and I told her not yet. So as a precaution she put an extra shield during the x ray. I would be cautious till you know for sure, if you turn out to be then I would ask your doctor.

I had an abcess tooth in very early pregnancy and they just threw an extra x ray vest over my stomach. It was fine. I asked my doctor about it when I found out I was pregnant.
