In brief: Take care
I am a big fan of herbal medicines, but use during pregnancy is complicated by lack of safety data and lack of control over the product.
I actually favor use of magnesium tabs. A safe and effective smooth muscle relaxant, they work great at bedtime (400-800mg- start low to avoid cramps or diarrhea) for everything from constipation to restless legs to leg cramps!

would also try drinking 80-100 oz of caffeine free/alcohol free fluid daily during the pregnancy if your doctor has no contraindication to the fluids.
