Yes, you're fine. There is talk about consuming peanuts during pregnancy, but no reason almonds would be unsafe.
I have been drinking silk almond milk my entire pregnancy. Im currently in my third trimester with only 49 days to go. I am not a fan of milk and I know I don't get as much calcium as I should. I switched to almond milk because it has twice the calcium and half the calories of regular dairy milk. I get the unsweetened vanilla kind that has only 30 calories per serving. It great because it doesn't have any added sugar and you still get plenty of calcium. I worried about excessive weight gain during pregnancy because a.) both my parents are diabetics which initially put me at risk for gestational diabetes and b.) I want to get back to my normal gym routine asap and get my body back to normal. My baby boy is perfectly healthy with no complications to date. Both my regular OB and my perinatalogist said everything looks good for the arrival of a healthy baby body.
I have always preferred Natural, Unsweetened Almond milk as an adult. Growing up on a dairy farm I WILL not drink sweetened milk (i.e. your normal gallons you buy at the store). I hate that they mess with the natural nutrients of it :(
