  • No one can safely tell you that. You need to call your doctor. It's not safe to come to CM for medical advice regarding your pregnancy.

  • Yes. I took it just the other day for an allergic reaction and my doctor said it was fine.

  • My doc said it wasn't ok until after 12 weeks, then only when REALLY needed. You're going to get a million different answers here, I would call your own doc.

  • My doc gave me a sheet of safe meds during pregnancy, and benadryl was on there, but not until AFTER the 1st trimester.
