Should I get a test to see if Zoloft affected my baby in anyway?

Patient: Recently in January, I got pregnant, and later on found out in the middle of march.From the moment of conception to the moment I found out I was expecting, I was taking the antidepressant Zoloft. I know zoloft has history of causing birth defects, so at my next prenatal appt, should ask the doctor if there’s anyway we can tell if the zoloft did damage?
