In brief: Yes

It is ok to mop with pine sol.
You may be more sensitive to smells in pregnancy, but no harm to the baby.

you should be fine, the smells may bother you, but the baby wont notice.

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Yes

Just don't mix with chlorine or anything else, dilute it well and don't inhale deeply while pouring the stuff in.
The smell is more likely to cause nausea than anything serious.
