    So I was having chest pains last week and went to the ER. They took some blood for testing and it came back not normal so the ER doctor said the next step to make sure I don't have a blood clot is to do a Chest CT. He told me the risks involving my baby, which scared me more then anything. All I want is a healthy baby!!! While the ER doctor called my OB, my husband and I talked and thought it would be best to get it checked just in case there was a clot. The on call OB didn't sound too worried and just said to make sure my abdomen area was well covered. We did the CT and it came back there wasn't a blood clot...Thank goodness! Now I'm worried my baby wont be healthy. I know I should just wait til my next appointment with my OB but I need some positive vibes if anyone has had a CT scan or knows of anyone that had one and had a healthy baby! TIA
