This is what I found:

Active Ingrediant - Light liquid paraffin, white soft paraffin, anhydrous lanolin

Pregnancy and Breastfeeding

There are no known harmful effects when this medicine is used by pregnant or breastfeeding mothers.

Ive been using it almost daily since before I got my BFP with no problems- I think its fine and its mainly Vitamin A creams that need to be avoided in pregnancy...

e45 should be absolutely fine. The only potential problem is it contains lanolin which some people are sensitive too, but even if you were I don't think it would affect your pregnancy. Also, I think you would've had areaction upon using it in the past if you were sensitive to lanolin. I've not personally heard of anyone who is anyway

My eczema is quite bad ATM on my face, I'm currently wondering whether to risk hydrocortizone(sp?)

I hope its safe, I always use the body cream and I never even thought it wouldn't be.
