In brief: Exercise

It is best not to begin a new strenuous exercise program during pregnancy.
If you exercise regularly, continue with your normal routine. If you want to begin a program, walking is probably your best option.

In brief: Talk to your OB/GYN

I can't fully answer that question in 400 characters or less.
Depends on exercising hx and medical history as well as any ob/gyn history that may or may not be relevant. "usually" is a good idea, but that is a very qualified answer.
