I came across this and it's not a bad idea to run it by your doctor first as with anything.
To date, the medical literature has not reported any adverse effects related to fetal development during pregnancy or to infants who are breast-fed. Yet little is known about the use of this dietary supplement while pregnant or breast-feeding. Therefore, it is recommended that you inform your healthcare practitioner of any dietary supplements you are using while pregnant or breast-feeding.

Let alone the amount of BCAA you are getting in each dose you take of AGENT-M, or XTEND, or any other BCAA product.
Remember, whatever you intake, your little baby inside you is taking in as well!
I would recommend consulting a doctor with any supplement, even protein. The reason i say protein because unless its strictly 100% protein with no additives, that protein might have something in it that with effect your babies growth, or otherwise, who knows what could happen.
Hope my input does you well!

Not ok during pregnancy
The reason for this is because high levels of BCAA in children under the age of 12 have been shown to sometimes cause retardation and mental damage. An unborn fetus or nursing child can inadvertently consume extra levels of BCAA through any kind of nutrition passed from the mother to the child during the pregnancy or nursing stages. This is why it has become a general rule for medical professionals to recommend that women who are pregnant or nursing not take any kind of BCAA supplement.
