My OB said mouthwash, even mouthwash with alcohol in it, is fine as long as you're not swallowing the whole bottle of it.Plus, it's good to have have healthy gums during pregnancy.  Gum disease has been linked to low birth weight babies and preterm labor.

yes, it's fine.

Since gingevitus (spelt wrong) is common during pregnancy, I would use whatever you have been using beforehand. Just don't swallow it and you will be fine.
