Another US NRC deadline is upon us for 24 March 2015: https://www.federalregister.gov/articles/2014/11/20/2014-27519/radiation-protection The following article by Dr. Ian Fairlie should prove helpful for the question about embryo-fetal exposure to radiation, dose assessment, and more. Dr. Fairlie has a degree in radiation biology and his doctoral studies concerned the radiological hazards of nuclear fuel reprocessing. [1] His research was instrumental in shutting down Quebec’s nuclear power station. His 2014 article, related to the one below, is discussed here: http://www.ianfairlie.org/news/childhood-leukemias-near-nuclear-power-stations-new-article/ Commentary: childhood cancer near nuclear power stations Ian Fairlie © 2009 Fairlie; licensee BioMed Central Ltd.  p. 1Commentary: childhood cancer near nuclear power stations Ian Fairlie © 2009 Fairlie; licensee BioMed Central Ltd. , p. 2Commentary: childhood cancer near nuclear power stations Ian Fairlie © 2009 Fairlie; licensee BioMed Central Ltd. , p. 3Commentary: childhood cancer near nuclear power stations Ian Fairlie © 2009 Fairlie; licensee BioMed Central Ltd. , p. 4Commentary: childhood cancer near nuclear power stations Ian Fairlie © 2009 Fairlie; licensee BioMed Central Ltd. , p. 5Commentary: childhood cancer near nuclear power stations Ian Fairlie © 2009 Fairlie; licensee BioMed Central Ltd. , p. 6Commentary: childhood cancer near nuclear power stations Ian Fairlie © 2009 Fairlie; licensee BioMed Central Ltd.. p. 7Commentary: childhood cancer near nuclear power stations Ian Fairlie © 2009 Fairlie; licensee BioMed Central Ltd. , p. 8 Commentary: childhood cancer near nuclear power stations Ian Fairlie © 2009 Fairlie; licensee BioMed Central Ltd. , p. 9Commentary: childhood cancer near nuclear power stations Ian Fairlie © 2009 Fairlie; licensee BioMed Central Ltd. , p. 10Commentary: childhood cancer near nuclear power stations Ian Fairlie © 2009 Fairlie; licensee BioMed Central Ltd. , p. 11Commentary: childhood cancer near nuclear power stations Ian Fairlie © 2009 Fairlie; licensee BioMed Central Ltd. , p. 12 Highlight-Underline added.

Note that many nuclear reactors do “Batch releases” of radionuclides into the air, and/or water, multiple times per year and not only when the fuel is changed. That is, some reactors leak constantly and some hold back the leaks until some of the short-lived radionuclides have become less radioactive or non-radioactive. Then they release the remaining longer and long-lived radionuclides all at once as “effluent”. Dilution…
