at about 15 weeks pregnant is it safe to masturbate until orgasm?

Yes: In general sexual activity including masturbation is safe during pregnancy unless you have preterm labor later on or issues like placenta previa. Probably best to limit stimulation to the clitoral region and outer portion of vagina as you will be less likely to have spotting this way. You will likely fell crampy for a day or so afterwards and this is normal.
