Stop using the machine. Any writes to the hard drive further endangers the data and may make it impossible to recover. Next, download the trial version of Data Rescue 3 and run it from an external hard drive or disk (you may have to buy it, I'm not sure the trial will run from disk) to see if it can recover your data. The software is $99 but it's the best at recovering deleted data. Here is the LINK.

Oh, and also smack yourself in the head for not running Time Machine or some kind of backup program.
