Vitamin b6 supplement during pregnancy

I started taking a 100 mg vitamin b6 supplement daily while trying to conceive in addition to my prenatal which also contains 15 mg of b6. I read that b6 helps increase your cervical mucus. I got pregnant the cycle I started taking the vitamin b6 supplement. Can I continue taking 115 mg of b6 now that I am pregnant or do I need to taper off or stop taking it altogether? I'm concerned about possible effects a high dosage of b6 has on pregnancy and developing baby. But I also read that since b6 helps produce progesterone, if you stop taking it right after getting pregnant your progesterone levels will decrease putting the pregnancy at risk. Please advise. Thank you.

My doctor has me taking B6 for nausea/morning sickness. I'd call and ask your nurse. It should be okay.
