So without thinking I gave my dog a bath with some anti flea shampoo and now of course i'm worried it may not have been a good idea :/ 7 weeks pregnant. Is this something I should avoid touching? Could I have done damage with just one use?

I wouldn't be worried about one use. In future use gloves just in case, but it's not likely to have done any harm.

You could always google for the MSDS, but I wouldn't worry. Unlikely to be a problem with skin exposure. If you drank it... well....

I doubt it.
If you can dye your hair without causing problems for your baby then I doubt whether this would be an issue. I doubt whether enough of it would sit on your skin for long enough, and at a dose strong enough to enter your bloodstream. And if you don't have to wear gloves when applying it then I think it would be ok. Maybe next time wear gloves? Ask your Vet or GP too next time just in case.

Thanks for your replies They have put my mind at ease. Nothing I can do now except be more careful next time! That is a very good point Koobie83 people do dye their hair when pregnant and that stuff stays on your skin for around half an hour!! Pheww
