Is exercising safe during pregnancy?

Hello, I was wondering as I’ve had conflicting information from online versus a local GP (who I happened to ask as well) I’ve just found out I’m pregnant, very exciting and so happy as we have been trying for 18months. Question is, I do exercise a fair amount and really enjoy LesMills body pump classes. Other than the abs track am I able to go along still through my first trimester? I do really enjoy it and have done the class 3-4 times a week for around 6 years. I am happy to modify and lessen the weights etc or temporarily not do it at all. Any advice would be wonderful. I don’t have a history of medical issues nor miscarriage but given how long I have been trying I want to minimise the risk whilst giving my pregnancy the best chance.
