In brief: Yes!
Unless you've been given restrictions by your doctor because of a complication, you can work out.
Choose a work out that has a low risk of falling or getting injured. Focus on oxygenating well by making sure you can say 3-4 word in a row without huffing and puffing. Good choices include walking, ellipticals, stationary bikes, yoga, and prenatal palates.
