In brief: Yes

From 16 weeks of pregnancy onward, it is best not to do any exercise that requires you to be flat on your back.

In brief: Listen to your body

Everything in moderation.
Early in pregnancy excessive exercise of any kind is not helpful. If there is a heart burn issue raising the intra-abdominal pressure can increase the chance of hiatal hernia. See essential exercises of the childbearing year.
