Feta is actually fine to eat as long as it's pasteurised as far as my research tells me.
I was told that as long as it is cooked it's ok. I ate it cooked in things all the way along my pregnancy. It's scary though when you accidentally eat something you're not sure is ok or not.
I found these to be the best documents for explaining what is safe/unsafe to eat and why certain foods are a listeriosis risk;
Any soft or semi soft cheese needs to be heated above 75 degrees to be considered safe.
OP please don't freak out - the cheese was cooked. BUT do arm yourself with the correct information about what is safe/unsafe and make a considered decision about what to consume based on accurate information.
I ate heaps of stuff that I'm not supposed to when I was pregnant (without knowing til after that I wasn't supposed to eat it) my baby is fine. I think it's good to be careful (and I will be more careful next time) but I wouldn't dwell on something you've already eaten because sometimes I think they get carried away with what we can and can't eat etc
It's nothing to do with being goat other than some of the goats cheeses aren't pasteurised which is a problem. But heat pasteurises anyway....
Eta: OP, I think because it was cooked and you ate it fairly soon after it is fine, there would have been no time for bacteria to reproduce.
