In brief: No it can't

Regular exercise is safe and encouraged during pregnancy.
We have had elite athletes in our practice, one who even ran a marathon at 7 months of pregnancy. That being said, be smart, keep to your usual routine, and keep yourself well hydrated. Finally consult with your OB to make sure you don't have any high risk issues that would make running inappropriate.
