In brief: No
Orlistat has not been tested on women who are pregnant so i would not recommend using it.
It is important to eat well and stay active during pregnancy. Talk with your doctor about the right plan for you.

In brief: Yes
Orlistat is listed as category b in pregnancy, meaning that it is a safe medication to take, however, i would avoid use of any medication in the first few weeks of pregnancy to be completely safe, especially given the fact that orlistat is not an emergency medication to take.
