I was prescribed piriton to help me sleep as I had intrhepatic cholestasis of pregnancy (ICP/OC).
I also had a rash which is not the norm and it took my rash down. Didn't help the itch but it did make me drowsy!
In fact I am not sure being a clumsy pregnant lady you need any extra drowsiness!
I think avoid it if you can but it is surely not good for baby if you are suffering unnecessarily.

have been prescribed cetirizine hydrochloride today as I am sufferring badly from hayfever, which then aggrevates my already severe eczema. I am 4 weeks pregnant now. If you get a rash and are constantly itching and sneezing and crying, this is definitely not good for your baby. my doctor is saying these are least harmful and gave me a prescription for 60 days. If your body needs help - means your body needs help. No reason to sit and suffer too much there... After all, if you keep it untreated, your skin rash gets really bad, you itch even more and then get infection into your blood.... Definitely not good...

Hi, I found this thread useful as I have been on antihistamines for a long time (about 7 months) as I had bad skin allergies and have itchiness all the time.
I am now 7 weeks pregnant and tried to stop the antihistamines but itchiness comes back and it is very painful so taking one or two a week at the moment and that helps.
GP says that it is better to avoid them all together but i was not able stop completely but at least reduce it. I wanted to check what experiences others have, whether or not they have similar problem.
