I had an awful travel day back from San Diego to NY today.
I waited in line for 40 minutes to get through security and opted for a pat down (I'm 10 weeks today) instead of going through the full body scan machine.
Long story short - I waited another 10-15 minutes for a pat down to no avail (while my purse, laptop etc was sitting on the other end unattended).
I had to make a decision about whether 1. to miss my flight or 2. go through the darn body scan machine. I went with #2
(and to boot my laptop was gone when I finally got through
I am terrified about having gone through that machine and don't know why I made the decision i did (never again
if anyone has any experience or reassurances about those darn machines, I hope to hear them. I hope I have not done harm or increased my risk of m/c.
Feeling just awful.
