In brief: Depends

It depends on your job and your individual pregnancy and if there are other complications.
Check with your OB who knows your history, they can give you the best advice.

In brief: No

Usually there is no need to decrease your work if you work about 40 hours a week in an office setting and have no pregnancy complications.
Pregnancy can put restrictions on travel, especially in the third trimester. Jobs that require a lot of lifting or bending can put strain on an already sore back and may require reduced loads or hours. Complications in pregnancy may put you on bedrest.
