In brief: Get expert advice

It's best to talk to an expert like a certified personal trainer who has experience with pregnant women, sports medicine doctor, physical therapist or exercise physiologist, especially if you weren't doing resistance training before getting pregnant.
General recommendation is to lift lighter weights than you were doing before pregnancy.
