Category B: There is no evidence(with no human studies) that it will cause any issues, but again, no human studies either with mom or baby. Animal studies do not show any problems. However, you should check with your OB to be sure as different health issues within pregnancy could change the clinical picture. Once you speak to your physician, then it is just a personal choice from there. Best of luck!
