It depends on how much you worked out pre-pregnancy. Most things if you did it before it's okay to do it now. However I wouldn't want to do anything that jolts or jumps, I am not sure, but I just rather be safe than sorry. I did light crunches and walked every day with my second baby and I had the easiest labor with him and that's all I did was walk and crunches (strong abs help with pushing believe it or not!) good luck, and be careful!
