Hi, I'm lurking from 2nd tri.. I very highly doubt that you have harmed your baby in any way. I've known tons of females who were still taking birth control when they found out that they were pregnant. They didn't harm the baby at all, baby grew right on time and didn't have any problems. I would just suggest that you quit taking the birth control now.

Well it really depend on what kind of birth control. I also had the same issue when I found out I was pregnant a month ago at 8 weeks and was also using contraceptives. I used the Nuvaring. You need to talk to your doctor and he might send you to have a first trimester screening at hospital. This is what I did and thankfully my baby is unharmed. Its a special ultrasound including blood work which will decide the risk to your baby. I would advise you to definitely talk to your doctor at your next visit.
