Did your doc give you a list of safe medicines? Mine did, but I've since thrown it out. Give em a call in the morning and ask them.
No Ibuprofen is not safe while pregnant. I looked at my list and it says regular strength Tylenol is safe but no ibuprofen.
Only Tylenol is safe during pregnancy. Advil (ibuprofen), Aleve and aspirin are not. Aspirin is a blood thinner, so it is definitely not recommended for use during pregnancy and you shouldn't take anything that contains aspirin (salicylic acid), like Pepto Bismol. There haven't been conclusive studies done on ibuprofen or other pain relievers, so any effects on a baby are unknown, which is why you aren't supposed to take it.Consistent Tylenol use (multiple times a day for 5 days or more) has been linked with an increase in childhood asthma, so you should limit the amount that you use.
