I would really like to fly back to Chicago in January to see my family, and my closest airport is Manchester Airport. Now I read this article: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/ar...aked-airport-scanners-fears-cause-cancer.html and it scares the bejesus out of me because Manchester is the only airport with these scanners and they are being allowed to use them until November 2012. My OH doesn't want me going through these scanners but I fear that if I get there and cause a stink they won't let me board. It would be a massive inconvenience to fly from any other airport, especially as these flights leave in the early AM so I'd have to travel (on my own, with all of my luggage, preggers) the night before, get a hotel, get to the airport super early etc and the cost of all of that will pretty much be the same as the cost of the ticket. This is a major shot in the dark, but are there any pregnant ladies who have flown from Manchester Airport and did they allow you to get a manual search?
