It is always recommended that you talk with your doctor about exercising while pregnant. If you are already doing push-ups as part of your exercise routine and have the upper body strength, push-ups should not be a problem. You can also do push-ups with your knees on the floor. Push-ups are not going to cause you to miscarriage. Actually studies show that exercising while pregnant helps fetal development.
