what is the strength of your paracetamol the limit for an adult is on the packet usually 6-8 in 12 hours usually 1-2 tablets every 4 hours if you are finding this is not helping go back to your health care provider ewg midwife or gyno and ask for some strong pain killers

The recommended adult single dose of paracetamol is two standard 500 mg tablets. Research shows that the common threshold for liver damage to occur from a single paracetamol overdose is 15 gms (30 tablets) although standard hospital guidelines allow an extra safety margin and assume liver damage could occur at a single overdose of 24 standard tablets or 150 mg/kg body weight, whichever is the smaller.

It pays to think twice before taking any medicine while you're pregnant. Even something as simple as a cold remedy may contain substances which aren't recommended for use during pregnancy. "If you have any queries about medicines in pregnancy -- prescribed or over-the-counter -- speak to your doctor or pharmacist," "And always tell the pharmacist that you're pregnant when buying any medicines over the counter."

i found this on a web site
You'd be lucky to get through pregnancy without a single headache or back pain, but you're limited in your choice of pain relief:
Aspirin should be avoided as it has a blood-thinning effect. However, it may be prescribed by your doctor if you've suffered recurrent miscarriage or have pre-eclampsia.
Ibuprofen isn't recommended in pregnancy as it may affect your unborn baby and prolong labour.
Paracetamol is considered safe as long as you stick to the recommended dosage and only use it occasionally. One study found that expectant mums who took paracetamol on 'most days' or daily in late pregnancy were twice as likely to have a wheezy baby. Dr Deif Shaheen of King's College, London, says: 'Frequent use of paracetamol in late pregnancy may cause wheezing in [babies], but it might be explained by some other factor that we have not taken account of. We would recommend that [pregnant women] do not take it more than 1-2 days per week.'

please try to cut back on the use of your pain killers please for the sake of your unborn child
