Simethicone: Gas is a perfectly safe drugs to take during pregnancy . I hope you feel better soon . If your abdominal pain continues to get worse or you're unable to pass gas you need to see a doctor.

Simethicone is not absorbed systemically following oral administration. Systemic absorption would be required in order for simethicone to cross the placenta and reach the baby.
