    Default pregnant women X-Ray

    My wife is 5 month pregnant. Should she get X-Rey for medical? Or only doctor comments that she is pregnant and not going to have the X-Ray? Any advice...

    Pregnant women don't have to have the chest x-ray (nor do children under 11).

    If you haven't submitted ITA yet then its easy, simply add him/her in ITA with all paperwork needed and update the page which is there especially for any change in ITA, also write in covering letter with some explanation.

    If you have already submitted ITA, then I think you should drop email to the branch dealing your application. They will advise you properly.

    We added baby to out ITA once born.....jsut submit ITA as normal and let case officer know you are pregnant. Once baby born, get birth certificate and passport sorted out asap, then need to supply babies details to case officer and get baby medical done.....cost about 50 and took all of 5 minutes. Baby was less than a month old at time so all Dr did was same stuff you would normally get done at the babies 6 week check-up and if you have red book (which I didn't as had home birth and not seen health visitor to get one at time of medical) then Dr will proably have a quick look at that too. Only complication would be if baby was unlucky enough to be born some serious medical condition from birth.

    Having medical done while pregnant pretty good really because save money on not havong x-ray and although they are still 'required' to work out BMI etc.....Dr just write in big letters next to it that I was pregnant and it was meaningless. Same for things like higher blood pressure and higher cholesterol etc as all common when pregnant. If you end up having medical done after having baby there is more pressure on you to get back into shape quickly to fulfill the BMI and waist measurement requirements.
