In brief: It depends
Tylenol (acetaminophen) is safe during pregnancy.
Ibuprofen is generally considered not safe during pregnancy. Narcotics should rarely, if ever, be used due to the risk to your baby. There is a significant risk that the baby would become dependent upon the narcotics and go through withdrawal after birth.

In brief: Yes
The short answer is yes.
However, different pain killers may have different negative influences at the beginning or advanced stage of pregnancy. For example, anti inflammatory drugs may cause premature closure of fetal ductus arteriosus if administered during third trimester; opiates may cause delayed development and withdrawal syndrome of newborn.
