Category D: Both medications are category d: there is positive evidence of human fetal risk, but the benefits from use in pregnant women may be acceptable despite the risk (e.g., if the drug is needed in a life-threatening situation or for a serious disease for which safer drugs cannot be used or are ineffective).

Yes: Cytotec (misoprostol) is an abortifacient when used in the first trimester and second, and would only be used for termination or delivery of a dead or nonviable fetus. In the third trimester, and in much smaller doses, Cytotec (misoprostol) is used for ripening of the cervix prior to induction of labor. It is associated with more frequent abnormal heart rate tracings, but is generally not dangerous if used judiciously.See 3 more doctor answers
Suggest not: The literature goes back and forth, but some of it indicates that aspirin may cause harmful effects to the unborn, so the safest bet is to avoid it. If you are using it for pain or fever, Tylenol may be a suitable alternative, assuming you don’t have any conditions that prevent you from taking it and are not already taking a prescription drug with acetaminophen, the active ingredient in TylenolSee 1 more doctor answer
Insufficient data: There are few if any studies of the safety and efficacy, as well as quality control of non-prescription meds & supplements. According to the manufacturer there is not enough information to say whether or not this supplement is safe in kids under 12 and that pregnant or breastfeeding women should check with their doc first. It is always best/safest to get vitamins and minerals from a healthy diet.
Yes.: Flucloxacillin is absolutely safe during pregnancy, as are all penicillins provided you are not allegic.
Not 1st choice.: Usually not the first choice, there are other blood pressure medications which are considered safer for the fetus, like aldomet, (methyldopate) but let your doctor try and decide. It's very important to have your blood pressure well controlled. I have used verapamil, if Aldomet (methyldopate) doesn't work or Aldomet (methyldopate) doesn't control it.
Yes: Iron requirements are increased in pregnant women compared to nonpregnant females. All pregnant women should be tested for iron deficiency anemia and treated with supplemental iron if needed. Untreated iron deficiency anemia during pregnancy may be associated with an increased risk of low birth weight. (american college of obstetricians and gynecologists).
Yes: That is safe in pregnancy. It is a category b medication, indicating that animal studies do not indicate any problems, and fetal harm is unlikely. That said, it has been used extensively in pregnancy without problems.
