In brief: Should be okay.
While you are pregnant, you should avoid eating anything that could potentially be contaminated with bacteria.
This includes raw or undercooked meat, shellfish, and eggs; also avoid unpasteurized milk or cheese. Spinach and artichoke dip should be okay as long as it has been prepared properly.

In brief: Yes
Foods to avoid are: unpasteurized dairy products, raw/undercooked meats, more than 1-2 servings fish per week (controversial).
Risks of luncheon meats/hot dogs, etc... Is very low. I don't tell my patients to avoid those. Spinach and artichokes? Yum.
