In brief: Yes
This is not something that should be pondered over much.
With effort, and sometimes without much effort, you can regain your former body shape, if it means that much t you. Human pregnancy is a very metabolically transforming state and i will suggest that the outcome, with your precious new baby, should be considered well worth your risk of some personal body changes.
