In brief: Yes

Bikini waxing is safe in pregnancy.
You will often have more hair on your body and your skin will often be more sensitive when you are pregnant but otherwise it should be fine.

In brief: Usually yes

Since this is a superficial treatment it is very unlikely to cause any risk to your pregnancy.
However, it is possible that additives to waxing materials may pose a small risk. Since waxes used for this are not controlled by the fda there is no way of knowing what additional substances may be present. Sticking with plain wax would be the safest thing, and ask you OB doctor.
