Morning after pill and pregnant

I am 26 and expecting my third baby. Did a blood test yesterday and it says that I'm +- 4 weeks pregnant. What bothers me is that I took a "morning after pill". I'm very worried that it might have an effect on the baby. I took both pills 12 hours apart.

Do you know of any cases where the baby was fine or, God forbid, not?

There is a known failure rate with the morning after pill and the fetus is not affected.
