Simethicone in pregnancy?

I'm 6 weeks pregnant, have not had an MD appointment yet. I'm experiencing terrible gas pains. Is it okay to take Simethicone 125 mg once a day?

It is safe to take. I had horrible gas pain and my doctor recommended it. I read that it works in the stomach only and never actually gets absorbed into the blood stream, so it never crosses the placenta barrier.
