I don't believe it can harm the baby if you're already pregnant! Plan B is just supposed to prevent fertilization and implantation. According to Plan B's website:

"Emergency contraception works in a similar way to birth control pills, primarily by:

  • Preventing ovulation
  • It may also work by:
    • Possibly preventing fertilization by altering tubal transport of sperm and/or egg
    • Altering the endometrium, which may inhibit implantation

Emergency contraception is not effective once the process of implantation has begun. It will not harm an existing pregnancy."

I honestly have no idea if it would or not. I would think that no it wouldn't, but definitely let the doctor know obviously. The whole thing with Plan B is to stop implantation or to stall the dropping of an egg. From what I have learned of the pill is that it doesn't actually do anything to the egg itself.

yours should be fine, if you're worried talk to your ob so he/she can reassure you!(:
