Unexpected pregnancy and birth control
Socalsinger posted:
I just found out I'm 14 weeks pregnant, and was on birth control for the first two months. Pregnancy tests were negative. The birth control was ortho micronor. Around 12 weeks I also took plan b. looking back, wish I would have known sooner, and I feel really bad about it. Does anyone know how this could impact the baby?

I've found studies that say impact has been shown to be minimal. But I am still very concerned.

You should be fine. There are many women who continued to take birth control before they knew they were pregnant and their babies came out fine.
