donated blood before I found out.

How big of a deal is it if I donated blood just before, as in the day I found out I was pregnant???  Did I harm the baby?

I'm sure that your baby is just fine.  A lot of people do things 'not recommended' during pregnancy before they find out they are ... drinking, smoking, riding rollercoasters, etc.

I did a little Googling about it and found these:

http://www.pregnancytoday.com/articles/health-and-physical-changes/blood-donation-1843/

They both say that pregnant women should not give blood ...but again, you didn't know you were pregnant at the time.  So you and yer little bean should be just fine.  Talk to your doctor about it and let him/her know about the donation.
