Can you get a chest x ray while pregnant?

Has anyone had an chest x-ray while around 19 weeks pregnant & baby came out just fine? I had one & my primary doctor today said she forgot I’m pregnant SMH The X-Ray technician did “double” wrap me with protection and said it from her past experiences everything has been fine. I’m just worried now. I am on the search for a NEW PRIMARY as this was my LAST straw with her​:heavy_heart_exclamation: Thank you ahead of time :smiling_face_with_three_hearts: :pray:t4:


I actually was 24 weeks, got really sick and they needed to check my lungs. Baby girl is 2 fine and extremely smart. You should be fine.

I’ve had a X-ray on my foot while pregnant. Once 20 weeks hit they can no longer perform xrays as that is where the trouble starts.

I had several chest X-rays and then some with my oldest for a pulmonary embolism. She is perfectly perfect :slightly_smiling_face:

I did! I did have some issues come up not too long after, and became a high risk patient. I still to this day kind of blame myself for allowing them to X Ray me. My pregnancy was fine up I until 18 wks. I had some gallbladder issues which I didn’t know the time was what it was, so they ran every test under the sun including the x-rays. I was induced at 36.5 weeks due to“ measuring small for dates “ but he came out Perfect, 6lb4oz, almost a month early he was not small by any means :woman_shrugging:t3:

I had a chest xray to check for clots in my lungs, and everything is totally fine so far. :slight_smile: they take really good care of you and use multiple shields where baby is.
