In brief: Tetanus vaccination!

Gardening is fine during pregnancy, with reasonable precautions: get your tetanus toxoid vaccination (due to be renewed every 10 years), wear gardening gloves, avoid contact with animal feces/droppings, wash your hands thoroughly before eating, maintain good hydration and avoid extreme weather and heavy lifting.
Best of luck!
