Debilitating migraines, 6 weeks pregnant, taking fioricet (acetaminophen butalbital and caffeine) daily. Fioricet (acetaminophen butalbital and caffeine) or hydrocodone during pregnancy, which has less effect on embryo and fetus?

Debilitating migraines, 6 weeks pregnant, taking fioricet (acetaminophen butalbital and caffeine) daily. Fioricet (acetaminophen butalbital and caffeine) or hydrocodone during pregnancy, which has less effect on embryo and fetus?
