In brief: The issue with a

Dry suit is what you are doing in it.
If you are snorkeling or swimming that is fine. If you are diving in a dry suit, that is not healthy during pregnancy.

There are very few human studies involving pregnancy & diving/ hyperbaric pressure. There are more animal studies. Reported abnormalities include: low birth weight, premature delivery, amniotic fluid bubbles, loss of pregnancy, blindness, abnormal heart anatomy, limb weakness & deformity,fetal circulatory changes & abnl. Skull. Decompression sickness can also impact the fetus.
