I was a figure skating instructor when I was pregnant with my first child, I was on the ice teaching the whole time, and stopped 5 days before I gave birth.  My doc was nervous but since I had been a competitive skater for 12 yrs and knew what I was doing they said I was ok.  I did stop my own skating, as I was practicing 6 days a week, as a precaution. I haf a less chance of falling teaching than I did actually working on my skills.  If you know how to, and can do it well, I don't feel its an issue, however if you are a beginner or only do it a few times a year,  I think you shouldn't. Ask your doc to be 100%.
