This might be a really stupid question, but i was just wondering, Is it safe to go canoeing while being 6 months pregnant.

I don't see why not. This assumes that you were physically fit enough to canoe before you got pregnant of course. The recommendation for most activities is that if you could do it before you were pregnant you can continue doing it as long as you feel able. The exception being sports with a high risk of physical trauma (things like rugby, football and hockey) since a hard blow to the abdomen could be dangerous after the first trimester, things like scuba diving. Canoeing should be fine though.
