I am currently pregnant for 4-5 weeks as on 13 May 2011.I have undergone a CT scan of abdomen and pelvis on 4 May 2011.
Its was a life death situation where the doctor had to perfrom the CT scan.My last period date was 30 march 2011.One of the doctors have advised me to terminate the pregnancy as the radiations will have adverse impact on the fetel.
The other doctor feels at the time of CT scan the fetel was actually not developed to a stage where it could have the impact of CT scan.

I am confused what to do now.I will appreciate any advice which can help me decide.

Thanks
Mary
