Airport screening

Hello mammas!!
I'm very curious as to the airport screening they have. I'm 5 weeks and  flying this weekend, I'm wondering if it's safe to go through the screening or ask for a pat down. I don't want to take any risks.. Idk how safe that is.

When I flew back in June I was 25 and 27 weeks pregnant. Its safe to walk through the metal detectors (I was visibly pregnant but still mentioned and asked if it was okay)

I did get my belly ended up being pat down though, so don't be surprised if they do that lol. But besides that its all good!

I live on a military base and go through the metal detectors all the time for various events that our base holds and its perfectly safe!

I flew at 8/9 weeks pregnant. I would worry more about getting sick on the plane and where the bathrooms are in the airport. :)

I'm wondering the same thing DIA uses this scanner that you step into and it rotates around your body. Is that what you have at your airport? I think I'm going to ask my doctor about it I have to go to Alaska at the end of the month. I looked it up on the TSA website and it was pretty vague.
