While you are pregnant, you may also have other common
problems, like a cold, mild headache, backache, mild fever, or the flu, that
are not caused by your pregnancy. These minor symptoms generally do not cause
problems or hurt your baby. In general, doctors say it is usually safe to take acetaminophen (Tylenol) for fever and pain.
Be sure to follow these nonprescription medicine precautions.
