2 doctors agree

In brief: Should be ok

Watch out for unrelenting, severe pain, or significant enlargement whhich may pose a problem by allowing the intestines to come through the hernia defect.
It should be fine, and thhis is a common issue during pregnancy, see you OB doctor for more specific info about your case.
