I'm 26 weeks an 2 days pregnant an I have used it the whole time.  I have asthma so it helps me sleep.  My dr knows I use it an they never told me not to... so I would say that its safe.  I'm high risk so if it was not safe they would have told me asap.  I have found that a vicks vaporizer helps too.  I hope this helps.  Anita

Thanks for responding Anita!!  I really appreciate it.  Congratulations on getting to 26 weeks of pregnancy!!  I hope I'll be able to get to that stage too. I lost my first one at 9 weeks last July. I'm really praying hard to get through this first trimester.  Best of health to you and your baby- Gemma
