First off, congrats.

Exercise helped my wife a lot. She lifted and did light cardio (walking) during her first pregnancy but did not during her second. The first birth went more smoothly.

The second birth she constantly battled pregnancy high blood pressure, and it got so high that we can to do an emergency C-section.

So yes, we would say there are definitely benefits to moderate resistance training and mild cardio. I wouldn't advise anything crazy. Light work can go a long way.
