You should try to stay at a similar level of exercise as you had prior to pregnancy.
Do not try to do significantly more, but for most moms, they should strive to maintain. This does not include extreme athletes and ultramarathoners. It may be time to slow down and take a break from taxing the body too much.

Keep in mind that there really is no limit per se.
There are some women who are exercise instructors and continue to work while pregnant. Ideally if you could do an hour a day that would be beneficial.

For low risk patients exercise is great during pregnancy.
Cardio, core, and moderate weight training can be performed safely. Keep yourself hydrated and consume a light snack before and after workouts.
