It is generally accepted that dentistry during the second trimester of pregnancy is safe to Mom and Baby.  Implants are a surgical procedure and would be best postponed until after delivery.  Talk to a qualified Cosmetic Dentist about your options and always get your obstetrician's authorization.  Veneers can often make the teeth appear straight or improved.
