Yes. Studies over many years have found no evidence that being near computers is harmful during pregnancy. Computers (like cell phones and microwaves) produce non-ionizing radiation, which is different from the ionizing radiation produced by X-rays. The amount of non-ionizing radiation put out by computers is too low to harm a developing baby.

If you use a laptop, it's best to place it on your thighs (or a desk) rather than on your pregnant belly, since the machine creates heat. (Overheating is a concern because raising the core body temperature higher than 101 degrees F in early pregnancy has been associated with birth defects.) But even if you do put it on your belly once in a while, there's no need to worry that it will hurt your baby. The heat from a laptop is not enough to increase your core body temperature to a harmful level.

There is one way that sitting for hours in front of a computer can be harmful while you're pregnant: It isn't good for your circulation. To keep your blood moving, it's a good idea to get up every hour or so and walk around.
