I know it is discrimination if I fire a woman for just being pregnant but is it discrimination if she can't do what I need her to because she is pregnant and has proven it already?

no, most laws state that if in the case her position requires tasks that are outside of their present physical abilities you basically need to place her temporarily in another position, or accommodate her with equipment to assist her in completing a task (like getting carts so she can transport heavy objects), or offer her extra time off and hire a temp.
and actually, you COULD fire her -- but the lawsuit would probably wipe your company clean. Better to invest in accommodating her than to have a million dollar lawsuit.1

I mean it's in your power but I think she could sue you stupid if you do.0
