In brief: Likely nothing

Many people have taken the pill while pregnant over the years and even though there is warning not to do so there has been no information that this causes any significant consistent harm to a fetus remember there are so many other factors that can harm a baby but this is not one to worry much over-just stop as soon as find out.
