Yes.: If you are nor exceeding 3 grams/day, paracetamol should be fine to take throughout pregnancy and lactation. Of course consult your obstetrician to see what causes you pain, instead of just taking a pain killer by yourself!

Yes: Nausene is citric acid and sugar which is similar to hard candy like jolly rancher. It does have some artificial sweetener also which could be problematic if overdone. It is rated Cat C meaning that it has not been tested and found to be safe.
