In brief: Absolutely

There is no danger to using topical hydrogen peroxide on your nails during pregnancy.
Whether it will be effective in treating the nail fungus is another question. Unless severe, it is probably better to defer treatment of your toenail fungus until after your pregnancy, and then try more effective treatment.
