In brief: No
Lifting toddlers can be tricky during pregnancy, but it should not be too much of a problem. Remember to lift correctly with the legs not the back, and be careful to maintain good balance and posture.

While it important to be active in pregnacy, you should avoid heavy lifting while pregant, do not overtax your body, but remain active.
Walking is excellent.
