There were two women on the gym I go to that were lifting weights all the way until the 7th month. After that it was yoga, swimming and other exercises underwater, so that they would not put strain on their joints. They were even doing abdominals until their bellies got too big and would put pressure on the blood vessels and they could pass out from it. And they were back for light exercises some two weeks after the birth. And they were no athletes.
On the psychologic side well... anything can happen. Some women really change after having a baby. And that's absolutely fine. Whatever she decides will be the right decision.
That said, I wish for a healthy pregnancy and birth, a healthy cute baby and... why not... an olympic medal (never underestimate a champion!)
Off the ice
Tatiana had her baby in 2000, and of course missed the entire 1999-2000 season. IIRC, her first competition after giving birth was 2000 CoR. At that time, however, she and Roman were not yet serious medal contenders.

That said, I hope Isabelle knows she's going to have to be at least 10 times better than anyone else when she comes back next season (no joke), but oddly enough, if I was a gambling person (which I'm not), I would lay odds on her doing the impossible, against all odds. I can't wait to watch the show!
Isabelle, three words: Citius, Altius, Fortius
May the best win! *guns goes off & the race begins*
