In brief: No, They don't lead

To fetal loss. Bed bug bites may cause no sx's except for 2 small points where skin was punctured.
It can cause itchy, pink, swollen, lesions with a clear center. In cases of hypersensitivity blisters may develop. A telltale sign is linear track of lesions from sequential feedings.

In brief: No

Bedbugs can be uncomfortable and aesthetically displeasing but carry no diseases nor do they pose any risk to the fetus or the pregnant mother.
