Sure: As long as you and your fetus are in good health, you should be fine with low impact exercise.

.: Should be ok as far as you don't overdo it. If you have abdomen pain or breathless, stop.

Yes!: Even during pregnancy staying active is part of a healthy lifestyle. Don't over do it. :) walking, lifting moderate weights, swimming, etc are all good options. If you start to have cramping and / or bleeding talk to your ob/gyn to see if you need to modify your activity.
