Yes: Buttermilk is safe during pregnancy. There are a few things that are not ok during pregnancy like certain medications as well as alcohol consumption. It is important to eat a balanced and healthy diet. You might go off certain foods, but it's always possible to swap these with others of similar nutritional value. Pasteurization prevents disease, so try to use a brand that is pasteurized.

Buttermilk is: neither good nor bad for you. Drinking fatty foods before sleep however can increase the chances for reflux and aspiration during sleep and chronic cough or pulmonary issues. Why not have it for breakfast instead?
