Hi...you can keep pregnancy but it require strict follow up... As you underwent 2 cs previously; the mode of delivery is cs only..so u can plan elective cs after 37 wks maturity...But as your age is 35 years chances of having trisomy disorders in your baby is comparatively more...but you can go for screening at 20-22 wks pregnancy to rule out trisomy in your foetus... For your back problem you can consult orthopedician & take symptomatic treatment...
