In brief: Yes, and recommended

Vitamin d is essential in pregnancy.
Actually it should have begun before pregnancy, as it takes 3 mos. To reach appropriate levels with just daily replacement, unless you load up with high doses at the beginning of therapy. Check w/your ob. Calcium is also important. As well as folate and prenatal vitamins.
