In brief: Same as not pregnant
The core for treatment of fibromyalgia whether pregnant or not is management of sleep, hormone balance, treatment of any chronic infections, well balanced nutrition and exercise as able.
For pregnant women, water aerobic is the perfect exercise. You can sometimes find these classes at your local ymca or better yet find an exercise physiologist and start a class for pregnant women.

In brief: Natural therapies
29 yo pregnant female w.
fibromyalgia & worsened pain seeks relief. Sacroiliac joint belt, soft mattress, aquatherapy, massage (perhaps w. topical cannabis which raises no appreciable blood level), & mindfulness therapies useful. During pregnancy female body releases hormone relaxin, further loosening ligaments; worsening pain in women with Joint Hypermobility Syndrome (see Brighton criteria).

All of the above are great. I would consider acupuncture also.
Dr. Laurence Badgley
Yes, acupuncture has benefits.  From many patients I have interviewed, I have learned that effects of acupuncture are transient and contemporary with the treatments. My current regard is that acupuncture treatments for chronic pain are not cost effective.
