no harmful radiation exposure during the pregnancy.the back pain is because of your belly increasing size putting pressure on back muscle.also contributing is, they might have pricked your back when doing caesarean section for anesthesia. rest. support your belly while standing.

this type of back pain is normal in pregnancy. its due the effect of the uterus on back bones. but doctor says if back pain is associated with pain in the abdomen or bleeding in vagina and water coming from the vagina. then you should be more careful.
