She may not be going out with you to get drunk with you guys, but the bartender will make her something nice (my recommendation is muddled blackberries and basil with soda) and she can enjoy your company.
Since announcing I’m pregnant, people love inviting me to the bars. They are always insured to have a designated driver, and I’m building up my arsenal of incriminating photos to blackmail for furture babysitting from friends.

Everyone has already said it all. Invite her and let her decide whether she wants to come. As a mom of two kids, I can say during pregnancy (especially if it’s early) she may want to go out and do stuff because it’s the last time she’ll just be able to get up and go without worrying about a child. If she doesn’t want to come, she can make that decision.
I was the first of my friends to have kids (or one of them) and I always appreciated being invited, even if I didn’t always go.

I guess I don’t understand why you think that you should be the one to dictate what social situations are appropriate for her and which ones are not. Invite her to everything and let her decide for herself what she does and doesn’t want to take part in. Just cause she’s pregnant doesn’t mean she can’t grab a cranberry juice and take part in some girl talk.
