Can I please take some damn Benadryl???

I literally feel like I'm dying of an allergy attack right now. This is my 2nd pregnancy and I'm in my 15th week. I've tried the low dose allergy medication Chlortrimeton (or however you spell it) and it does absolutely nothing for me. So... do you think that if I took a dang Benadryl pill that it would hurt my baby?

  • It shouldn't. Benedryl was on the okay to take list when I was pregnant in 09...I don't know if they updated it since then, but my kid is fine when I had to take it.

  • I took it once with my first pregnancy. Dr said it was ok to take just one pill in a dose but not 2.
