In brief: Depends

It is considered safe in the first and second trimesters with no toxic effects on the fetus.
It is relatively safe in the early 3rd trimester but problems with the newborn can occur if it is used around the time of delivery.

In brief: Sometimes

We use Aspirin in pregnancy under certain medical conditions, and only if there are no alternative medications.
Monitoring its use by your doctor will insure it's safety. Generally though, we recommend Acetaminophen for things like headache, sore throat, pain, or fever.
