    God helped overcome my problems in / during pregnancy.

    God helped overcome my problems in / during pregnancy.

    I think it should be 'during'. Am I correct? If there is any better preposition?

    Thanks.

    Both 'in' and 'during' are fine.

    I agree with 5jj, but I think that "God helped me overcome my ..." sounds more natural.

    Much more natural. I should have spotted that.
