  • low dose tylenol works for me. Don't take Ibuprophen since it can have side-effects.

  • some doctors dont like you to take anything at all the first trimester... Since that is when most of the development happens. I would ask your doctor to be sure but tylenol, plain ol tylenol is safe.. They will tell you this when you go to your doctor.

  • You can take tylenol but def no motrin. It can cause bleeding at any point in pregnancy

  • yep tylenol. I think the dosage limit is 600mg. I usually stick to 500 in the fast releast caplets and they work wonders.
