pregnant - neeed help

I did preg test last night and got the two stripes, unplanned pregnancy but needless to say not unwanted.
I am just so afraid, I have been through so much in the past two months I don’t know what the chances of everything being ok are.
I was on anti-biotics 4 times from June till mid August. I have been really ill, with pneumonia. Then a week ago I was involved in a serious car accident, a truck drove over my car. Luckily I survived, just with complications with my lower back. After the accident I had a voltarin injection, and have been on pain killers and muscle relaxers till yesterday when I realised I might be pregnant.i also have had xrays taken. I am only a week late and I thought that this was because of stress of the car accident. what is your opinion?

If you have not taken these medications in the past week, you should be okay. You have to have quite a few X-rays before it causes a problem.

congrats, but my suggestion is to contact your gynae and tell him the above, especially the xray part. don't think the medication will have a real impact but i am concerned that you had xrays. just for peace of mind call him/her. good luck and congrats again.
