Some of the side-effects of the dye are: nausea and discomfort and in certain cases severe allergic reactions. It is recommended that patients do not eat before a CT scan to reduce the possible risk of feelings of nausea turning into a bout of vomiting. If you vomit while lying on your back for the scan, you may aspirate some of your stomach contents and possibly develop pneumonia.

It means that your placenta is in the front of your uterus. This is not an issue in early pregnancy as the placenta usually moves as pregnancy progresses.

Yes, if you are early in pregnancy before you can feel your baby move. Later on, once you can feel your baby move you may feel a difference in the movements,a dead baby rolls rather than kicks. Go to your doctor or midwife and get them to scan you or just listen for the heartbeat to set your mind at rest.
