In brief: Safety

Codiene is not recommended during pregnancy.
Safety is not well established. Long term use can lead to growth retardation, dependence and withdrawal in the fetus. Very short term use for acute injury is generally felt not to be harmful. The other drugs mentioned are ok.

In brief: No.

Do not take codeine.
It has been associated with teratogenicity with respiratory tract malformations in babies. It is a category C drug by the FDA meaning only use if absolutely necessary. Best not to use paracetamol long term due to possible neuro effects and ADHD. Lowest dose for the shortest time. Ferr +Amox ok http://nsnbc.me/2014/07/20/paracetamol-pregnancy-linked-neurodevelopmental-problem/
