During the first two trimesters, ibuprofen probably doesn't cause any harm to the fetus, although there haven't been any really good human studies`(as with many medications during pregnancy). A few have shown a possible link to miscarriages or difficulty with implantation very early on, but other similar studies have shown this not to be the case. In the third trimester, it is not recommended since a medication similar to it causes closure of one of the blood vessels in the fetus (the ductus arteriosis), which can lead to major problems. Because of this, most physicians tend to recommend taking acetaminophen for pain and avoiding ibuprofen completely unless absolutely necessary. Hope this helps! Dr. B.

Not really. These small ailments usually will not harm the fetus. Only diseases like rubella can harm the fetus.

Drinking milk while pregnant is good for the mother. The fetus will get what it needs whether the mother drinks milk or not. Ultra pasteurized milk has no different affect on mother or fetus than pasteurized milk. Drinking unpasteurized milk while pregnant is not recommended.

It's not a good idea for a woman to drink alcohol while she is pregnant because she is not drinking for herself, and it will affect the growth of the fetus. It could possibly kill the baby before it's born.
