In brief: Should not
Most stains can be irritating and even when not pregnant may need to be performed with a mask or breathing apparatus, or at the least with proper ventilation.
Best to avoid this activity while pregnant. Make your husband or boyfriend do the staining!

In brief: Yes
It would be best to do in a well ventilated space and to use liquid stain instead of aerosol sprays.
Wearing gloves would be beneficial.
