In brief: Listen to your body
Although it is safe to have sex until the last few weeks of your pregnancy, you should let how you feel guide your actions.
It is normal for some things you used to enjoy (i.e., foods, smells, or activities) make you feel nauseous or sick. Just pay attention to your body and your mind, and see a doctor if you find yourself feeling down or unable to enjoy any of the things you did pre-pregnancy.
