In brief: Yes

It doesn't hurt to let your doctor know what type of exercising you want to participate in.
Remember to stay hydrated; not get over heated; and keep your heart rate at 140 BPM or below. I recommend low impact activities.

Water aerobics are great

In brief: Yes

It would be advisable to let your doctor know so they can guide you about what exercise at what stage of pregnancy.
