Hi Rachel,

US FDA pregnancy category C: Animal reproduction studies have shown an adverse effect on the fetus and there are no adequate and well-controlled studies in humans, but potential benefits may warrant use of the drug in pregnant women despite potential risks.

Try non-medicinal pain relief first, like rest, warm/cold compresses, or a massage. If your pain still won't go away, Tylenol is supposed to be safe during pregnancy. Call your OB/GYN to be safe.
