I just got pregnant from a man that was going through chemo therapy which ended in oct 2013. Should i be worried about the baby?

In brief: Do not worry

Specifics help a lot - what chemo, what disease? - but it's unlikely.
Reproductive problems from chemo usually arise from abnormal or dead sperm, and these usually affect sperms' ability to fertilize, not produce birth defects.
