What will happen regarding unauthorized employment after my adjustment of status has been filed?

Question Details: I am on an F-1 student visa but recently got married to my long time girlfriend who is a U.S. citizen. I filed for AOS 4 months ago. However, I have engaged in unauthorized employment by accepting an internship that started last week and runs for anther 3 months or so, less than a 180 days. Prior to filing for my AOS and EAD I had been in legal status with a clean record. I was hoping I would receive my EAD before my internship started. This internship is a great opportunity I couldn't turn down the experience as my field of study is very competitive and experience based. I intend to stop working immediately after the internship ends. I would like to know if my AOS application could be denied based on my brief violation or are there any legal options that are available to me?
