In brief: No
Any activity that has a high potential to fall is generally not recommended during pregnancy.
After about 12 weeks the uterus is no longer protected by the bony pelvis and a fall could cause pregnancy loss or preterm labor.

You not want to risk exposure to any abdominal trauma will pregnant and with mountain biking there is certainly a risk of falling and subsequent abdominal trauma.
