In brief: Back and fertility

You will be able to get pregnant as long as you continue to ovulate regularly.
Do everything to keep yourself healthy and healing well. You'll need a healthy back in pregnancy. If you want to consider an epidural, you may want a consultation with anesthesiology prior to labor to discuss plans.
