ANSWER #4 of 5

Yes, there are medications that you can take while pregnant. They dont expect you to suffer for 9 months without being able to take anything. Tylenol can be taken for pain (not ibuuprofen or advil though), tums can be taken for nausea and heartburn which are both commen during pregnancy, and there are also tons of cold medications that can be taken (sudafed and dayquil for example can be taken). Your first appointment with your obgyn they almost always give you a paper with a list of medications that are safe to take while your pregnant.
