    Here is a thread about this very same subject:

    Like all exercise routines....consult with your midwife prior to starting a new regime.

    Don't over exercise during pregnancy, specially first three months of the pregnancy.

    Exercise is good for you in pregnancy, and is perfectly safe. However, it's thought that as many as three quarters of women with a healthy pregnancy don't do enough exercise.

    So how to know when you are exercising too hard? Your maximum heart rate is around 220 minus your age. If you’re pregnant at 30, this is 190 beats per minute. The evidence from elite athletes therefore suggests you should stay under 90 percent of that, or about 170 beats per minute. If you think you may be coming close to this, by all means get a heart monitor and try it on a few runs. If you find you’re not coming close, you can start leaving it at home.
