Unlikely to happen: The human body has a great capacity to protect a developing fetus from many of the issues that may cause us transient indigestion.I wouldn't lose sleep over this one.

Whether your pregnan: Is viable or not will not be dependant on this event, it doesn't sound like you had food poisoning, an event that in pregnancy loss is not well studied. It has been hypothesized that morning sickness may have emerged in humans, and persisted, to avoid food poisoning, and while interesting is impossible to prove. This event should not affect the pregnancy. Congradulation's by the way and good luc.

Probably not: If it doesn't make you sick with nausea, vomiting and diarrhea and dehydration then your pregnancy should be fine. If it was that easy to terminate a pregnancy we would have never needed to legalize abortion! amazing that you could still pour it out after 4 months!
