In brief: Generally yes

If it is safe enough for you to eat when you are not pregnant, there is no reason to exclude deli meet when you are.

In brief: No

From the centers for disease control: "?do not eat hot dogs, luncheon meats, cold cuts, other deli meats (e.
g., bologna), or fermented or dry sausages unless they are heated to an internal temperature of 165°f or until steaming hot just before serving." at http://www.Cdc.Gov/nczved/divisions/dfbmd/diseases/listeriosis/.
