When a woman finds out she's pregnant, she'll do just about anything to make sure her baby is safe. This often includes eating right, avoiding smoking and not taking any unnecessary medications. But what constitutes a necessary medication? This depends on the woman and the severity of the underlying medical problem for which the medication is being taken for.

But what about allergies? Should a pregnant woman take medications for allergies?

This depends on the safety of the medication and the severity of the symptoms.

Have you or would you take allergy medications while pregnant? Why or why not? Would you do it again? Share Your Experiences
