welcome healthcare magic
do not worry. did you get the chest x ray done with an abdominal shield? x rays during pregnancy should be avoided,however it is most dangerous during the first three months as this is the period that the organs are forming(period of organogenesis). since you are in your 7th month, the risk is minimal. do not worry and carry on with your pregnancy and do not get any other x ray done now.
