In brief: No

It is not safe in pregnancy.
Your doctor will have to change it if you become pregnant.

In brief: Probably Safe

Adalat (nifedipine) has recently been shown not to cause any developmental issues.
However there are more proven agents that provide no fetal harm such as Labetalol or Methyldopa for blood pressure control during pregnancy.
