Donating blood whilst pregnant.
On the 30th July I donated blood not aware that I had conceived in the same month. I' m only seeing Gynae next week but I' m worried that I may have caused harm to my unborn baby. Will it affect the baby somehow?

No it would not harm the baby, but you should now conserve your energy for the pregnancy.
