Xray during pregnancy


Q: I'm 2 weeks pregnant and I had a xray about 3 days ago. When I had the xray I didn't know I was already pregnant. I didn't find out til a day after. The xray was for my scoliosis so it showed my stomach and everything. I don't know how much the radiation was, but when I searched online how much radiation do doctors use for a xray for scoliosis it was minimum. So my question is, is there a chance that the baby will be perfectly fine and have no affects? I also was reading online about experiences of women having X-rays while pregnant and they're child came out fine .
