im not sure why you can't carry on as normal, whilst taking the usual precautions though?

I cant be in the same room as the equipment so she needs to alter my off duty

That's odd, most scope guides now don't use radiation and if they do, you should be protecting yourself anyway due to the risks, pregnant or not. Have occupational health got confused? They don't stop radiographers etc from working for 9 months.
