That's about right.  One baby aspirin a day is allowed, at least in early pregnancy, to keep the blood from being sticky or something.  The best way to tell is to look up any otc drug you want to take or call its 800 number, and to ask about contra-indications during pregnancy.  Almost nothing for a cold can be taken, it's a shame when you have a sore throat and are sneezing.  :)

Tylenol for pain, hydrocortosone with less then 1% for itching and stretching. tums prep H. My dr gave me a list of all approved meds you can take, I don't have it at the moment but if you ask your dr they will usually provide you with one.
