Welcome to MySwissAlps, Sam! Let's take a look at your questions.
If you want to get up to the snow, I'd recommend a visit to the Jungfraujoch or Schilthorn. In most cases pregnancy shouldn't be problem, but it's wise to check with your doctor before leaving if you plan to visit areas over 2500 m (which goes for buth Jungfraujoch and Schilthorn). Warm clothes are a must. You can also dress in several layers of thinner clothes if you don't want to carry along thick winter jackets. As for boat trips and waterfalls: you can visit the Trümmelbach Falls (to be combined with Schilthorn/Jungfraujoch) and the Reichenbach Falls (t0 be combined with a boat trip over Lake Brienz). Further tips for the Bernese Oberland are here.
For your stay in Zurich you can consider a visit to the Rhine Falls. This requires some traveling time though. The city itself and its immediate surroundings have more than enough to offer for two days as well; please check the Zurich page.
The best pass depends on your final travel plans. I think you should look into the Swiss Half Fare Card and the 4 day Swiss Pass, especially if the idea unlimited traveling appeals to you. This step-by-step plan on how to pick the right pass may be of help.
