Take a break: Progesterone causes the lining of the uterus to build up tissue. During reproductive years, the progesterone level falls at the end of the cycle, initiating a "period", which causes the sloughing of this thickened lining so the process can repeat. If you take progesterone all the time, though, bleeding can develop when the lining is too thick. I recommend stopping the progesterone for a week or 2.

Depends on the age of the child: In the early days after birth, the baby's system is just starting to work so the number of diapers is low. After about a week of age, most babies are making about 6 to 8 wet diapers per day. Many or most of those will contain stools. The stools transition from black color to bright yellow. As your baby gets older and starting taking solid foods, the frequency will decrease & color will change.

No risk or benefit: There is no reason that you can't continue it your whole pregnancy. It is of no benefit beyond 36 weeks but it won't do you or your baby any harm.

Remember...: Remember why you started in the first place and how much better you felt while doing it. Also, schedule it as an appointment. Even if you don't want to do it, do 10 minutes. You can always find 10 minutes. Right?
