In PADI Open Water instruction, Diving while pregnant is not recommended.

Not only should pregnant women refrain from diving, women who think they may be pregnant or are trying to become pregnant should likewise avoid it. A survey of 208 mothers who dived during pregnancy showed higher rates of low birth weight, birth defects, neonatal respiratory difficulties and other problems

Here are two links for information from Divers Alert Network on the risks of pregnancy and diving:

I have seen some while searching Google. That might be the way.
