You're fine, there's some great pics of a mama doing crossfit (lifting) at 8 months pregnant. As long as you feel good, and make sure you're eating enough calories to compensate for the expenditure. 
Needed shrimp this morning. Nearly barfed from an apple! I love having symptoms. 
"In our study, the risk for IUFD in pregnancies going beyond term is remarkably lower than found in studies published about other countries. Our results do not support current guidelines which recommend a routine induction of labor in low risk pregnancies at 41+0/7 weeks of pregnancy." Then there is this "For each trial, the risk for IUFD was calculated in identical fashion, based on the number of ongoing pregnancies." of course the number goes up, there are less...

I encourage all moms to be their own authority.
