just found out

Hi, my name is Adelle, I have a 4yo named Gavin. A little history, I had my tubes tied after Gavin was born, I had a unexpected tubal pregnancy in Aug 2009 and I just found out that I am pregnant and due 12/4...my main concern is that I had a upper GI 2 weeks ago. Anyone have experience with radiation during the first month? I am concerned my baby will have 2 heads or something.:eek:

Hi mama! Congrats and welcome to December!

I have no experience with radiation like that. I would think that if it was 2 weeks ago, your baby would just barely have been implanting then, and I'm sure everything is fine. Definitely something to mention to your MW/Dr though when you see them!

ETA: Oh, and I have to say, I guess they didn't do a very good job of tying your tubes if you've conceived twice since then! :eek:

Hello and YIKES! Congratulations!! Like Nicole said, that was so early on I'm sure everything will be just fine. And I agree, the doctor who performed your tubal did a terrible job! Oh well. Everything works out, right?

I know, odd huh? When I had them tied during my c section, my doc said " I hope you are sure you wanted them tied because they are cut, tied and burned very short". When the doctor did the surgery to remove the tube and the 5w2d fetus, he said my tubes were completely regrown and looked perfect. Go figure! I hope it will be OK, when I read about it online, they say the most dangerous time to do it is between 1 and 8 weeks..Perfect!:(

Nothing you can do now to change the radiation situation. Hopefully it wont have any effect on your baby.

Congrats and welcome to Dec. Let us know what your doc says.
