Colonoscopy in general during pregnancy is considered safe. For abdominal pain during pregnancy, I’d consult with your obstetrician and ensure that it isn’t coming from something related to the pregnancy rather than the GI tract.

It is best to avoid colonscopy during pregancy unless absolutely necessary. You need to discuss this with your doctor.
