i had a mole biopsy at 14 weeks pregnancy and they used a local anesthesia shot (i think lidocaine) did this harm the baby?

Wouldn't think so: To affect a fetus any medication exposure would need to reach a detectable level in the blood flowing through the placenta. A local injection of xylocaine would dissipate quickly & therefore have little chance of reaching the general circulation.
