  • benadryl. i'm 15 weeks pregnant and ever since 6 weeks my doctor told me i can take benadryl. it helps with the allergies and can help her keep from being sick.

  • The list of safe meds is always changing. When I was preg with #2 I took Benadryl. When I was preg with #3 they told me it was no longer on the list so I wasn't allowed to take it. Best to ask the doc.

  • I've had two different OB's with my two kids, and they both told me benadryl was fine along with sudafed for congestion (which never works for me anyways). I never take benadryl though, unless i'm desperate because it knocks me out! If i were her, i'd call the doc and double check though!
