Always ask your doctor's opinion before conducting any exercise. Try to avoid lifting heavy weight, especially towards the end. Also, it is only suggested to continue exercising if you were before pregnancy. If you haven't been, now is not the time to start. Walking, stretching and swimming are usually acceptable.

Physical exertion during pregnancy should be carefully monitored by a health care provider. Exercist that might be acceptable in the first trimester might be physically impossible by the third. Any strenuous exercise that significantly increases heart rate or exerts stress on the abdominal area should be avoided until carefully discussed with medical personnel.

You can exercise while being pregnant as long as its something your body is already used to. For example, if you regularly run before becoming pregnant, then it is safe to continue running throughout your pregnancy. You just don't want to start anything new that could put your body into shock. Also, yoga is a good pregnancy exercise.

During your last trimester you should avoid really rigorous exercise. You can exercise during pregnancy unless your doctor tells you that it's not okay for you to do so. Don't do too much. Make sure that you warm up before doing your exercising so you don't strain any muscles and limit your work outs.
