We generally consider that small doses of Nurofen (ibuprofen) early in pregnancy are reasonably safe. It's recommended not to be taken after 30 weeks of pregnancy.

It's unlikely that taking 2 Nurofen will cause miscarriage or any other problem for your baby. Most experts recommend Tylenol for pain relief during pregnancy.
