For a while, yeah. Women are not incapacitated ("dehabilitated", in JR-speak) from the moment they become pregnant. What level of vigorous activity they chose to persue is an individual decision, partially based on her "baseline" activity level, family history, etc., all in conjunction with her doctor's advice.
She could very well decide to continue to work (carefully) for the first several months. Probably not til she's on the way to the hospital. But *if* she is actually pregnant, they might as well 1) explain her absence inside of plotline, 2) give her a few extra paychecks during the interval that she isn't actively wrestling, as well as 3) setting her up with backstory for her return, & 4) tossing some additional depth into Kane's character.

There's a charming addendum. WTF is that all about?
Well...babies don't shake loose when you do a huracanrana. I was in a high-speed rear-end collision when I was about three months pregnant, and the kid probably slept right through it. I wouldn't worry much about a pregnant wrestler on the physical jolting count. What I *would* worry about is all the air travel and fatigue, if I cared to worry about the health of a presumably competent adult wholly unrelated to me.
But I doubt this angle is anything other than an angle. (Please, let it be so.) If it goes over like a lead balloon, it may just turn out to be a "false alarm" anyway.
They don't shake loose, but I don't think you to want to be taking [errant] shots to the stomach either. Yes, it is fake, but bump the wrong way (or take a spear which seems really popular right now)...
It's a dog eat dog world and I'm wearing milkbone undershorts.
If she does continue wrestling even though she is "pregnant", this could add some unique elements to her matches. Imagine how people would react to an opponent who targeted her midsection, for instance.

A post from moi in this thread a week ago "One good news is that means Lita is will be out of the ring to sell the baby in her. Then I remember it's Lita wrestling, her slowness and lack of bumping or selling anything for her opponents I'm sure she can wrestle the same way 8 months into her pregnancy and it will be believeable that the baby will be fine... Bet she'll pull a Torrrie, as Torrie was at her fathers emotional "funeral" on Thursday and squashes Dawn on Sunday. I can totally see Lita finding out the shock of her being pregnant on Sunday Night Heat yet even with that has no problem defeating 3 women in the PPV".
With claims of being a meanie anti-Lita. But DAMN was I very close in my semi-sarcastic post, I was just a day off. If you saw Monday it's pretty gosh darn accurate with her having a match where she bumped for nothing but that's usual for her... The kicker is how she can squash the champ in this "emotional state". Wow this woman is a super hero. Maybe she can be like Friar Tuck in the old Rocket Robin Hood cartoons and just use her belly to knock out the entire division.

What should her opponent do, just work her arms. The dreaded arm bar is the only move her opponents can do on her LoL... If she's a valet and attacked I can see the low cheap heat. But going willingly into a match knowing you're pregnant doesn't that make you kind of heelish? Really what can your opponent do?
smark/net attack wienerville advisory stays at BLUE alert - Guarded (With Benoit & Eddie being World & WWE champions you'd expect all's be right but couldn't do it due to Trish/Y2J character switches & whats the deal with JBL PPV main event)- 5/6
Finally, a little red machine to run around and set stuff on fire Lita's shopping list- Fire-proof cot Mini fire-extinguisher Mini mask (just in case) Mini Matt Hardy V1 T-shirt(to remind him of step dad) Safety matches Mini sunglasses(from when he first meets Step-Uncle Jeff, the floresent one)
Annual caveat that I haven't voted in the awards in a long time. Most outstanding is "best worker"/best haver of matches. Thesz/Flair wrestler of the year is basically an amorphous MVP award that combines working on top with great matches.
