Women can carry out almost any physical activity. That is, as long as it has been designed by a professional that will supervize it as well.
Moreover, doing physical exercise is extremely beneficial for pregnant women, for example:

- Support to improve the digestion
- Reducing the constipation
- Postural control to avoid back pain related to the pregnancy
- Increased energy
