In brief: Usually yes!

In early pregnancy there should be no problem having sex.
Later on, there are certain medical conditions later in pregnancy that may cause your doctor to recommend you avoid intercourse (placenta previa, preterm labor, etc) but for most pregnancies it is safe to have sex for all 9 months.
