I would only be doing those activities with her if she's already accustomed to doing them and is in very good shape. I would not be risking the pregnancy by taking an out of shape horse and training them to jump at 2 months pregnant.
Keeping your horse in shape is the best thing you can do for a pregnancy, but I would limit the amount of jumping and galloping I'm doing if she's not already in peak physical condition.
Riding right up to the pregnancy is generally considered a good idea, just limit extremely strenuous activity in the last few months. My best friend rode her mare right into labor and never had a complication!
I hope God tells her to smash her computer with a sledgehammer.
