welcome to HealthcareMagic
Normally diazepam should not cause any problems as you have taken it accidently.Please do not worry as diazepam will not harm your baby in any way and even will not affect the growth of your baby.

hi,thanks for query.Ideally any drug including this should be avoided in pregnancy.During first trimester most of the drugs are harmful.But the good part is one tablet in most of the case can not lead to major problem.The drug duration and dosage both plays an important role in side effects.Do not worry as the stress is more detrimental then anything else.Keep regular follow up with your doctor.
wishing you good health.
