Scuba Diving While Pregnant?

Dear Fitness Expert,
I'm 6 weeks pregnant. I have been doing power yoga for the last 8 or 9 months. I know there is a question about it, but it talks about heated rooms, which is not my case. Can I go on with my power yoga lessons?

Also I was just about to start a scuba diving course when I found out I was pregnant, can I do it?Thank you, I will really appreciate your answer for I'm living in a very small island in the Pacific, and I don't have any expert at all to whom I can ask!

Thank you very much again,
