I have an attraction to the same sex. Can this feeling I feel take any effect on my unborn baby girl. Or am I over thinking it.?

In brief: No

It is not known if sexual orientation is genetic, metabolic, or what, but your thoughts will not directly affect your unborn child.
If you have not previously had a homosexual or bisexual orientation, a change in thoughts about sex could even be hormonal. Many women have changes in their thought process during pregnancy.

In brief: Sexual Orientation

A person's sexual orientation dictates their attraction to same or opposite sex individuals.
Current thinking is that sexual orientation is establish by the time a person is born. We do not know what factors influence or determine a person's sexual orientation. There is no evidence to support that one's orientation could be influenced by a mother's orientation. Further research is needed.
