In brief: Yes

Yes it is safe to take.
Like all medications try to avoid unless you really need them. Most of the nausea and vomitting of pregnancy resolves by 8 to 10 weeks.

In brief: Should be safe

This is considered to be a class b medication meaning fetal animal studies do not indicate a risk.
In breast-feeding, it is considered an l3, which means no human studies have been done. However anecdotal information indicates no severe reactions.
