pregnant and getting a scope done..?? scared

So here's the situation. I'll be 6 weeks pregnant this coming Friday. 17 days ago I had the feeling of something stuck in my throat. Iv tried PPI's for acid reflux and everything else. I haven't had a bite of solid food in 17 days, which has caused me to lose 10lbs. I didn't want it to come down to having to get a scope done to see the problem in my esophagus, but it's now a must. I am very nervous because I don't want anything to happen to the baby, but not eating is just as bad. Has anyone gone through this, or been in a sticky situation like this??

Usually, I don't think those scopes are all that bad. I would just make sure that your doctor knows that you are pregnant, before he/she medicates you in any way. Hoe they can get you fixed! And Congratulations on your pregnancy!

Yes, just tell them. They may need to change the medicines that they use during the procedure.

However, studies have been done on endoscopy during pregnancy, and no evidence of harm to the fetus has been found.
