In brief: No

Sex, exercise, and dancing do not harm the baby while pregnant.
As long as you can talk while you are doing it, don't get overheated, and don't strike the pregnant abdomen, you are not going to harm the baby. Avoid high impact exercises like bungy jumping, parasailing, and high diving. Hope this helps.
