Yes, you should continue to exercise throughout pregnancy to avoid excessive weight gain.

As your abdomen enlarges, swimming is a great way to get a good workout. Of course, it is okay to continue to do other exercises like walking, riding a stationary bicycle or lifting light weights. Running, skiing and bicycle riding should be avoided after 12 weeks gestation because if you fall, it could cause fetal injury.
