Can I take progesterone during pregnancy?
(Weyers Cave, VA)
Hi Wray, I am 6 weeks pregnant with my second child and am experiencing, among other things, sleeplessness. I wake up between 2-4 a.m. and can't get back to sleep. I don't remember having this with my first pregnancy until later on in the pregnancy.
I had insomnia and other hormonal issues last year after weaning my first child from nursing. I used Natpro cream then and it really helped. I finally felt myself again and was sleeping well and now this!
Can I take Natpro safely while pregnant? I don't want to cause any further hormonal imbalances or anything and I wasn't sure if supplementing with progesterone during pregnancy would cause my body to stop making it's own progesterone.
Please let me know because I am desperate for good sleep, since I am pregnant and chasing after a toddler!
