If diagnostic tests that contain ionizing radiation (e.g., CT scanning) are deemed to be clinically necessary, they should not be withheld in the pregnant patient even with the concerns for an increased risk of fetal harm. Although a fetus can be harmed by radiation (including miscarriage, fetal anomalies, fetal growth restriction, intellectual disability, and future childhood cancer), the risk is low, especially at lower radiation doses.
I can across this post whilst attempting to discover if the changes I’m experiencing are common. Since falling PG (I’m talking week 1 before I even had a positive test) I’ve suffered awful nausea and vomiting, the last 3 days have been so different, I have no vomiting at all, the sickly feeling is only lasting 2 mins after a trip to the loo where to my surprise my vomiting has been replaced with diarrhea (sorry TMI I know) last night I’ve had some really awful lower back pain (almost my bum) I’ve NOT had any bleeding (but as I say MMC sufferer so I don’t bleed) my breasts are like boulders, large and firm and VERY tender so I am still getting pregnancy symptoms. The endometiosis has yet to be determined what stage it is but it’s fairly advanced I have a 7cm cyst filled with fluid on my right ovary, I have a cluster of small cysts on my right fallopian tube and there’s a BIG chocolate cyst that is free floating in the womb it measure 6.5cm at 5w2d and 7 days later had grown to 9.5cm.

While some women do experience diarrhea around the time of a pregnancy loss, having an episode of diarrhea does not mean that miscarriage is about to happen. Many women get diarrhea while they’re pregnant and continue to have a healthy pregnancy. If you are worried about your pregnancy for any reason, you should talk to your doctor. Another reason diarrhea occurs is because some pregnant women become sensitive to particular foods. These could be foods you have eaten often before, but eating them while pregnant can give you an upset stomach or diarrhea.
Hello. Last night I went out for a meal, I had lamb, I was told the meat was all pregnancy safe. The room was very warm and I ended up leaving the restaurant after my meal due to be to warm. As soon as I went outside I was fine but when I got home I had diarrhoea. I felt fine after that but this morning I went to the bathroom and had a bit more diarrhoea.
During the first 2 weeks of pregnancy, ionizing radiation is associated with an all-or-none type effect (miscarriage or intact survival) based on the radiation dose. After this time period, a dose less than 5 rads is recommended in order to decrease the chances of fetal harm.(9) A normal CT scan of the abdomen and pelvis delivers approximately 1 rad of radiation. As a rule, the least amount of ionizing radiation in necessary diagnostic tests should be utilized in the pregnant patient, and consultation with a radiologist and obstetrician is often helpful to achieve this goal.(9) A full discussion of the fetal risks associated with CT scanning is beyond the scope of this commentary, but a CT scan in this setting should only be obtained after obstetrical consultation.
