Do low impact versions of the moves & minimize abdominal work.

i've been doing squats all first trimester in pilates - absolutely no problems.
lunges can be an issue later on. My instructor is specifically trained in pre-natal work outs

Why no squats? I've see mining that says they are a problem in the first trimester and strongs gluts and hamstrings will really help later on in pregnancy.

Im a Zumba instructor im also 11w3d I do zumba 4x a week rt now. I just modify no jumping no squats. Make sure u hv plenty of water and sit down if u need to rest. I also hv plenty of students in my class that are pregnant. If ur body was used to it I dont see a big issue.

If you were doing it.before, there is no reason to stop. Just don't push yourself to much. And drink water during class.
I kept up with my Pilates class I stated.before pregnancy. I talked to the teacher, they are fine with, just let them know if something isn't feeling right. So far,everything is good and I have very strung abs

You may continue your regular preprego exercise routine as long as u are tolerating it well.  Exercise is healthy in pregnancy and good for both u and baby. I exercise 5 days/week just as I did preprego and feel great :)

Any kind of work out you did before pregnancy (regularly) is okay to do during pregnancy.
