In brief: Avoid

Given the demands of pregnancy it is best to avoid prolonged exposure to high temperatures.
There are more suitable forms of relaxation such as massage.

In brief: Generally no

You don't want to get overheated during pregnancy, because it can be harmful to your baby increasing your risk of birth defects or miscarriage.
If you are pregnant, it takes a lot more energy to cool your body and your risk of developing hyperthermia, or increased body temperature, increases.
