No work arounds for the x-ray. We x-ray pregnant women all the time. Just use shielding.

The Mayo Clinic says otherwise......

The possibility of an X-ray during pregnancy causing harm to your unborn child is very small. Generally, the benefits of the diagnostic information from an X-ray outweigh the potential risk to a baby. However, if you received a large number of abdominal X-rays over a short period before you were aware of your pregnancy, your baby could be affected.

 

Most X-ray exams ‚ÄĒ including those of the arms, legs, head, teeth or chest ‚ÄĒ won't expose your reproductive organs to radiation, and a leaded apron and collar can be worn to block any scattered radiation"

Check the Morocco regional forum for information on how long an interview takes to schedule after all your NVC documents are accepted and the case is sent to the embassy/consulate abroad:

Your question about pregnancy has already been answered--and an expedite for pregnancy of the beneficiary is highly unlikely.  Good luck!

It’s just a chest x-ray, not abdomen.
