Is it safe to take chlopheniramine in the first two weeks of pregnancy? I found out am pregnant today, and had taken it last week?

No proven risk: There is no evidence that chlorpheniramine (a common component of many non-prescription decongestants) is harmful in pregnancy in the usual prescribed dosages. I would not consider this "exposure" a reason to consider ending a pregnancy.
