Camping at 6-7 months pregnant. A very bad idea?

For our last vacation before the wee one is born, my husband and I are considering a 4-day vacation at the beginning of July in Kelowna, BC - chosen because it's beautiful, drivable and very warm, with beaches. Much desired after a long, Canadian prairie winter.
If we stay in a motel ($80/night), I expect the trip to cost $800 - $1000. Money is tight. I'd rather not spend that. It's a lot for a short, close-to-home vacation. If that's what it comes down to, we might not go at all.
So - should we camp it? I'm a pretty seasoned camper. My greatest camping misery is being too cold, and this shouldn't be a problem in Kelowna. A big blow-up mattress and body pillow should make it fine, right? What else could we do to make a camping experience super comfortable for a pregnant lady? Is this just a bad idea?
