What kind of work outs or exercises did/do you do? I do not want to gain tons of weight so I want to work out and exercise for as long as its healthy for me to do so.

You should up your protein intake to build muscle.

Did you work out before getting pregnant? If so, you can continue with that routine, but check with your doctor.

If not, you can do the stationary bike and walk. It is not advisable to start a new routine while pregnant, especially since you're body is changing and a new routine can take a while to get used to.

My care provider is a midwife who says I can keep up whatever I have been already doing, which includes riding my bike, (which is primary mode of transportation) hiking, and swimming. Her only input was at some point my balance will be compromised, and at that point I should probably not be scaling tree trunks over creeks =)
I have friends who have done pilates for pregnancy, which keeps you nice and tight! Just beware of the youtube version, I did it and hurt myself =/

You can't add any new workouts that you didn't do before pregnant. 

stick with walking and eating right. Your heart rate shouldn't go above 140
