Short answer: If your doctor decides you need X-rays, it is better to get an X-ray.
There are no conclusive studies about whether/or how much the radiation in x-rays can affect your baby. Your doctor or a specialist will evaluate your need to get an x-ray. It is important that you inform your doctor about your pregnancy, before you undergo any x-ray.
If you have some complication and you really need an x-ray, then doctors take precautions (your abdomen might be covered by a special metallic vest). Remember in some cases not getting an x-ray can harm you more than it can harm your baby and a healthy mother means a healthy baby.
X-rays for different parts of the body are different, implying different levels of exposure to your baby
