In brief: Talk to your OB

Everyone is different.
Exercises during pregnancy that are safe for one person may not be for others. You should discuss this with your obstetrician.

In brief: Pilates

You don't need a lot of weights or apparatus.
Pregnancy pilates or prenatal yoga gives you lots of strength training, especially abdominal work which will come in handy when it is time to push.
