Is paracetamol ok to take in first trimester?


Hello ladies,

This is baby #5 for me but the advice we are given changes all the time!! I was told in my last pregnancies that it was fine to take paracetamol but after having read through all the leaflets and general bumf from the midwife at my booking appointment I read that paracetamol was a no no in the first tri?!!!!

I am now suffering with a rather nasty headache and I am verging on a chest infection and just feel pretty crap. Is is ok to take or are they just being over cautious as normal?

Please reply asap as I need relief!!!!! Thanks xxxxx

I've been taking it and was told it was fine. It's the one drug that pregnant women are told they definitely can take...
