The Time To Check For Birth Defects

I am 29 years old this year, the second baby is 7-8 weeks old (according to the first ultrasound on July 29, 2011).

Because during pregnancy I did not know I was pregnant, so I took an emergency pill of 120g, and had a cold, so I took Decolgen to treat the flu.
Now I am very worried about the fetus not knowing whether the drugs I take will affect the fetus?
I would love to have a fetus screening to see if my baby has any problems? Please ask the doctor to diagnose all the diseases and deformities, so when do I need to go for ANC? (Ha Linh)
