Part of my new position entails working with an X-ray machine for half the day. I have an apron but I'm concerned about continued exposure.

Thoughts??? I mean I'm sure it is safe and I can't really go to my new boss and say "I'm TTC and the X-ray scares me"

I would say that if you are wearing an apron you shoud be fine but I would check with your RE just to be 100% sure

I agree I think with the apron you should be fine. I've seen pregnant women doing x-rays. Congrats on d job!

The apron should be ample protection when TTC, but I guess once you get your BFP, you'd have to have the talk with your boss very early on!

Intruding on your forum, sorry!
Last cycle when I thought I had a BFP I was at work when I found out and a couple hours later my baby had an X-ray that I had to hold for. I asked the X-ray tech and she said with the limited radiation and the apron, that it is totally safe. I would check with your RE but I think you should be okay.
