In brief: Category B drug
Permethrin topical is a pregnancy category b drug which means that animal studies have revealed no evidence of harm to the fetus.
There are no controlled data in human pregnancy. It is only recommended for use during pregnancy when the potential benefit outweighs the theoretical risk. You should talk to your ob/gyn about this.
