I assume from your post you are thinking about using diatomaceous earth as some sort of supplement to improve some aspect of your health????
I have checked my sources regarding published, peer-reviewed nutrition, health, and medical research studies and can find NOTHING on this product. I checked pubmed.com and the Natural Medicines comprehensive Database.
Do you care to share more on your intent OR where you have obtained your information. ARE you sure it is reliable. Are you sure it is backed by reliable research???
I would encourage you to FIRST discuss using this product with your doctor, pregnant or not pregnant.

I'm learning about the benefits of taking food grade diatomaceous earth and would love to try it, but since I am still pregnant, I'm debating on whether I should wait or not til after the baby. I have tried to look up some info on the internet, and everything I have come up with says that it is %100 safe.. But I wanted to check and see what an actual pregnancy forum thought. So anyone, is food grade diatomaceous earth safe to take while pregnant?
