Is benadryl or Zyrtec safe during pregnancy.

I can't find anything conclusive online and have an aura migraine. When NOT pregnant benadryl and a mix of tylenol and ibuprofen will kill it. As long as I drink a cup of coffee along with about 3 bottles of water.

I can't function for the pain, I don't want any pain meds, which if I were to go in for it would be their first thought, but I'm slurring my words and everything fades out when I move. I need to do something. I've had these for years, but usually not when I'm pregnant.

Saturday. It's the ER or Urgent Care until Monday. They'll call from there. He doesn't have an after hours line. And I woke up this morning with this.

Benadryl usually works better anyway.

Saturday. He doesn't have an after hours line. I can go to the hospital and they can call him from there, or leave a message and wait for Monday.

Quoting Schmoopi: Call your doctor.

Call the labor and delivery department at the hospital. Speak to whatever doctor is on call for your regular doctor. Ask.
