In brief: Yes
Due to the large changes in hormones during pregnancy, gingivitis is not thought of as a constant but is watched for undo changes.
Proper hygiene should be maintained in both conditions, or achieved for constancy in expected results. In a more stable condition outside of pregnancy, hopefully before pregnancy, a good hygiene should have already been established to know that maintenance is present.

Impeccable oral hygiene must be maintained during pregnancy. I have heard a lot of women use multiple children as an excuse for tooth loss or dentures. I believe this tooth loss is due to less priority on oral hygiene during pregnancy and child rearing.

Co-enzyme q 10 deficiency causes gingivitis and indicates normal metabolic decline in old people.
This is because this substance is known to be a "conditional nutrient". It is synthesized in the body by younger people and it is abundantly clear that poor diet is responsible in pregnancy. A supplement of coq10 will clear your gingivitis, but look at your diet!
