I have just had a CT scan for a check up on the Aug 17. Which I drank 3 cups of dye and also had some dye injected by IV into my viens and they x-rayed my stomach. At this time I would of only of been a week and half pregnant. This was an unplanned pregnancy. Is my baby at risk of serious health problems because of this or any at all?
