In brief: Yes

Most likely they are doing an ultrasound scan, which is perfectly safe.
It is the same technology that is routinely used to look at your baby during prenatal checkups. What might be harmful is an x-ray or ct scan... Which would be much less likely to be ordered for a pregnant female, and should involve a very lengthy discussion regarding the risks/benefits.
