It was really unexpected when I found out that I'm expecting.. But I feel great about it now. The matter is my worry about my baby well being.. I work in the hospital, I was exposed once or twice to x-ray before I discover that I'm conceiving.. Beside, I received two doses of hydrocortison, 100mg via vein in both times, I wasn't planning to conceive and no clue that I'm already pregnant.
This is my third pregnancy l'm happy but worried because of being exposed to x-ray and the two doses of the anti- allergic drug that I received.. I'm praying to deliver a healthy baby.. I'm so hopeful.
That early in pregnancy, I highly doubt it had any effect on the baby.

Think positive. A lot of women are exposed to things that are not safe for baby before knowing they were pregnant, and have completely healthy little ones.
I'm sure your baby is fine. Plenty of people do "harmful" things in the early weeks of pregnancy before they find out.
Try not to worry too much, mama. I also worked at a hospital when I found out I was pregnant with my first son, and in my department I was one of only 2 people trained to take a certain type of x-rays, so I did it quite often. And I was also drinking a lot before I found out I was pregnant. We now have a beautiful, healthy 4 year old who's about to start school :D
I had a few x rays and some CAT scans when I was around 2 months pregnant. I didn't know at the time. I had to have surgery twice on my jaw so I had to be put on strong medication to prevent infections and for pain.
My OB/GYN told me that it's not recommend to have all that done during early pregnancy but she said that it's a pretty slim chance that it would effect LO. They did consider me high risk because I went a while before being seen and because they weren't sure of the effects. LO was born healthy and happy full term.
Just let your doctor know if you have any concerns and I'm sure they'll be able tell you more.
