Dear Joanna,
We are certain that being pregnant and having a three year old is cause enough to worry, you need not be troubled by this Two Spotted Stink Bug,
 Perillus bioculatus. While this is a predatory species and it might bite if carelessly handled, it is not aggressive towards humans and the bite would cause little more than localized discomfort.  According to BugGuide:  “Bold pattern is distinctive, though color variable.”

Thank you:) I still hope I don’t find anymore. I assume it came through the sink or something.

When the weather cools, Stink Bugs sometimes enter homes through gaps in windows and other tiny spaces so they can hibernate.
