In brief: Yes

Pilates is traditional muscle training, especially in the abdominals or "core".
The exercises that i would discourage would be high impact aerobics, hot yoga, or any exercise that would cause an elevation in body temperature.

In brief: Pregnancy pilates

There are classes tailor made from preg, as u must be careful because some things u would normally be ok to do u cannot do when u bare preg.
