Had surgery a few days ago and did not know I was pregnant

I'm 21 and I had to get my wisdom teeth removed. A few days before I took a pregnancy test to make sure and it came out negative so I didn't worry about it. On the day of the surgery, before the doctor put me under general anesthesia he kept asking if I was pregnant. I told him there was a slight chance but I had gotten a negative and was showing no real symptoms. I got the surgery and it went fine and I've been taking hydrocodon/acetameniphen 325mg. 3 days after I felt a little funny and in the back of my mind I told myself to take another test and its a positive. I can't help but feel terrified that I could have hurt the baby.

I would talk to you OB when you go in for your appointment. Maybe take in the dentist chart notes with you so the Dr can see what happened.
