In brief: Most likely OK...

Raw chicken will not necessarily make you sick unless contaminated with the infamous salmonella etc.
.. For the most part, even with contaminated with salmonella, many people don't get sick consuming it because of small number of bugs--stomach acid helps. So, it was last night and you are feeling ok now, you should be fine. If abd pain, n/v start etc, consult doc. Congrats on pregnancy. Good luck.

In brief: Ypu are probably ok

Anyone should be careful eating raw or undercooked poultry because of the risk of food poisoning.
If you get food poisoning it will be bacterial, much less harmful to a developing fetus than a virus! be careful!
