Zin?: Can you provide a generic name for this drug. If you are talking about cetirizine, then it is likely ok since it is considered pregnancy category B in the old FDA classification - the safest rating it can give. As always, the less medication you take , the better off you are during pregnancy especially in the first 20 weeks.
