Hallo Landy
Yes, it is perfectly safe, but as the pregnancy develop one obviously must be careful not to be too rough. You may need to use positions that won't put pressure on your stomach like lying side by side, kneeling, or woman on top.
You should also be careful if you have a placenta previa (where the placenta is lying over the cervix opening as this can cause bleeding), if your doctor has advised against it, if you have a history of miscarriages, if you or your partner have an infection, if you have had bleeding during the pregnancy.
