pregnant radiation from exray

I took my 3 year old daughter to go get a exray cause she swolled a penny. I didn't know I was pregnant and I was in the room when she got her exray, I am guessing I was 2 weeks pregnant. I just found out I am pregnant, my question is what will that do to my unborn baby, and will there be an side effects?

You'll be fine. Many women get xrays themselves while pregnant, including several women on this forum. I'm sure there isn't anything to worry about at all because of being in the room while your daughter was xrayed.

If you were in the room, they should have covered you with a lead apron. That should have protected your baby so you shouldn't worry too much...you weren't the person being x-rayed.
