Early pregnancy and Natpro

Hi Wray, I want to start by saying how thankful I am to have found this cream. I have been using it for many months cyclically, and after a miscarriage at 10 weeks last year, I firmly believe it was mainly the cream that has allowed me to successfully achieve pregnancy over a year later. So I am very thankful!

I was severely sick with my first pregnancy - which was a successful, full-term pregnancy almost 4 years ago. I was sick for about 4 months and bed-ridden throughout that time. I have read what you have written about increasing the cream to help with nausea and other adverse symptoms. I'm only about 5 1/2 weeks into this pregnancy and the nausea has already kicked in pretty strong. I am using about 6.25 ml throughout the day - can I use more? It's difficult for me to know how much is too much or if I could be using more and not deal with any of the symptoms. I am definitely experiencing relief with the amount I'm using, but would use more if I knew it was safe and could actually completely wipe out the nausea. Do I need to be concerned about the baby's health or development in any way?

Thank you so much for your balanced approach and wisdom. I so value this website and I'm learning a great deal from you!

Hi there Bless you for the kind words! I'm delighted you've found the site helpful, I do try to give as much info as possible. It's essential to me that people can make up their own minds, once given the tools to do so. Progesterone is safe to use during pregnancy, and you can increase the amount too. I've helped other women with hyperemesis, but I've found 10ml (2tsp), or 330mg/day is needed to stop the nausea once started. It can take some time to do so though, so please have patience. You might find you need less than this, or more, you'll have to experiment. As the nausea is due to higher levels of oestrogen, see http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12681864 You might like to read our page on Pregnancy, plus this link here. Please have a vitamin D test done, this nutrient is vital for a successful pregnancy, plus vital for the growth of the foetus. See here, here, here, here and here. This is an excellent video to watch too, see here. You might consider taking taurine, as this amino is also vital for the growing foetus, see here, here and here. I've run out of space so will start a new comment below. Take care Wray

Hi there There's a fascinating branch of science called epigenetics. It's the study of how our genes become altered. Not through a change in DNA structure, but how toxins and/or a lack of foetal nutrition, can lead to a change in the way the genes express themselves. This leads to what is known as the foetal origin of adult disease, see here, here and here. From the papers I've read, I'm convinced a lack of vitamin D and taurine are major players in the process. For more info on vitamin D testing etc, see the Vitamin D Council, GrassrootsHealth and Birmingham Hospital websites. Take care Wray
