    No long term studies have been done on the safety of fenugreek while pregnant. Because low milk supply during pregnancy is a result of hormonal changes that protect the unborn baby, herbal or prescription galactogogues don't really help during pregnancy anyway.

    Probably not what you wanted to hear, but I hope that helps...

    You're welcome. Have you checked out our Pregnant and Nursing and Tandem Nursing boards? You might find that having support and encouragement from other mothers in similar situations really helps you.

    Hang in there,

    Here's a link that may help: http://www.kellymom.com/herbal/milks...html#pregnancy

    The only suggestion I have is eating a bowl of oatmeal each day.

    I don't remember where I read but fenugreek was not recommended during pregnancy, but nettle caps were ok...

    Please check out the nursing while pregnant forum. There are LOTS of other moms there and many are experiencing the same issues and emotions that you are.

    Best of luck to you!
