You needn't do anything. That small amount of bismuth subsalicylate in the Pepto Bismol might be administered to Phoebe should she suffer minor GI distress in the future! It's not absorbed into her system to any appreciable degree and so her pregnancy isn't an issue. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
