Hi and welcome to HCM.
Most common and safest analgesic in pregnancy is paracetamol. Aspirin can also be used, but better avoided in third trimester of pregnancy.
Topical Non Steroidal Anti Inflammatory Drugs are better and generally result in negligible blood levels and would be considered to be relatively safe in pregnancy although absorption is increased by use over a large surface area or the application of heat. Its better to consult your gynecologist and he/she will decide on which analgesic is better for you.

Nimesulide (tab nicip) must never be used during any stage of pregnancy. There are serious concerns about its safety. All the best

Regards
Dr Santosh
