Prenatal care: Likely yes your baby will be ok but prenatal care is vital to you & your baby's health. Rules for coverage for expectant mothers vary by state but your care may be covered & there are many resources provided by fqhc sites for un or under insured patients. Call your public health department for more information please.

Hopefully: The best pregnancy outcomes are in women with good prenatal care. You should be able to secure care at a community health clinic or rural health clinic - those clinics have governmental subsidy funding specifically to provide prenatal care for the uninsured.

Probably: We've had babies a lot longer than we've had doctors but its a good idea to hitch up with your doctor when you can.
