In week 14, you're probably between scheduled prenatal doctor's appointments. However, this doesn't mean that you can't ask your doctor any questions that come up. One thing that you may want to discuss is how other tests -such as x-rays, CT scans, and MRIs - may affect your baby. Sometimes, problems may come up during pregnancy that would normally be diagnosed using one of these scans. While there are concerns about possible harm of radiation to a developing baby, the amount of radiation tends to be small and unlikely to harm a baby in the second or third trimester. Of more concern may be the risk of not having a needed imaging test. If you're worried about a condition that may require you to undergo imaging scans, talk to your doctor to see if it's necessary and if there are any alternatives. In some cases an ultrasound test may be used instead.
