Took cytotec pills while pregnant. How will it affect the baby?

Hi im like 2 months and a half pregnant when i was about a month i took 5 cytotec pills to abort and just bleeding happened that day but not a lot. Then about a week later i took 7 more cytotec pills and this time there was more bleeding but today I took a pregnancy test and it was positive so im thinking of just keeping the pregnancy but what side effects would my baby be born with?

Thanks for writing to us.
The self medication like you have taken could be dangerous and can be associated with serious complications. You now need to an ultrasound scan to confirm if the baby is still alive. After a complete assessment, the well being of the baby can be confirmed.
