Can I take pepto bismol?

I'm 4 weeks pregnant. And I was just wondering if pepto will hurt anything? It says on the bottle to consult a dr. being that i'm so early into this I don't have a dr. yet. So what do you guys think?

The sickness bit is horrible :( nibbling on ginger biscuits before u get out of bed helps, & also those sea bands that go on ur wrists are really good, I wore mine for weeks!! Sucking polos too. :)

Peptide is not aloud while pregnant! I have always relied on the pepto chewable tablets when my tummy is upset and was very disappointed to find out you can't take it during pregnancy ):

No, don't take pepto. The reason is it prevents your body from absorbing nutrients, which is very dangerous during pregnancy. My Dr. also told me that pepto can pass through the placenta and hurt the baby. Anything with ginger helps but everyone is different try eating try toast or crackers too.
