Yes: Incoordination, double vision, and tremor would be more urgent symptoms.

Yes,but: Mri as a process creates no risk for baby.It does not involve radiation although the studies are often done in the same department as thoses that are.You might clear the procedure with your OB to see if they have feelings on the subject.
