In brief: Yes
Vegetarians can have a perfectly normal pregnancy.
There are considerations. You should make sure you get enough protein in your diet to accommodate your growing baby. Generally, we recommend talking to a nutritionist early on or before pregnancy to get an idea of the changes you will need to make.

Why would you want to be a vegetarian now? I see no problems but if you are doing it for weight during your pregnancy i would ask your obgyn.
