In brief: Yes

Prenatal yoga is a great form of exercise while pregnant.
The key differences from regular yoga are that you shouldn't be flat on your back, it is never done in really hot temps, and balance poses are done near a wall that you can catch yourself with if you lose your balance. If you have not done yoga before, it may help to take a couple classes before doing a dvd on your own.
