I was at the orthodontist last week and they took an x-ray of my teeth. Yesterday I found out I am pregnant~ which, of course, is a great thing! I am just worried about the effects on the baby.

For the x-ray, I just leaned my head kind of into this thing that moved around my face. They put a little thing on me to block the rays, but it only covered my upper torso, not my tummy at all.

So, should I be worried? I guess it's too late now anyway, but I would just feel better knowing it was okay.
