Hi,
How are you? If you had a diagnostic X-ray before you knew you were pregnant, any potential risk is exceedingly remote. While it is true that high doses of radiation can cause changes in a baby's rapidly growing cells, consider also  that the typical dose of radiation associated with a diagnostic X-ray, does not usually pose potential risk. To ease any worry, check with your obstetrician and have an ultrasound done to determine the estimated age of gestation. You can also ask for a referral to a medical radiation physicist to calculate baby's radiation exposure. Take care and regards.
