In brief: Metoclopramide OK

Metoclopramide is commonly used for nausea in early pregnancy.
Although we can never be absolutely certain a drug is safe, Metoclopramide is category b for pregnancy, and is probably as safe as anything you could take. Codeine often causes nausea. I wouldn't recommend it when you already have nausea.
