Patient : I am 37 years old and just found out I am pregnant again. There are a few concerns with this one. I recently fell and bruised my ribs when I was about 2-3 weeks along. They took chest x-rays without any shield and prescribed me Norco for pain. At that time, my period was not due yet and I forgot I had intercourse last month that could've resulted in a pregancy. I have 4 other kids with the youngest being only 5 months old. That delivery resulted in a prolapsed uterus that they never checked at either post-partum check up. I am still having pains in that are like it never got back to the origional position. This is definately an unplanned pregancy and am worried the unprotected x-rays and strong pain medicine may have affected the fetus. Should I be concerned at all?
