If not lost, nothing: Was your friend attempting to produce an abortion? If so, i would recommend she sees an obstetrician/gynecologist or competent abortion provider and stop improvising (placing her health/life at risk). In answer to your question, if the pregnancy was not lost, the effects at this early stage should not be discernible (all or nothing rule applies). I cannot exclude fetal brain ischemia, though.
