Voltaren

I am in my last month of pregnancy. I overexerted my forearms and hands and my muscles are cramping. Is it safe to use Voltaren ointment for muscle pain (My gynae says it'  s ok to use)? I have read that Voltaren tablets are not safe to use during pregnancy.

The information I provide here is strictly according to medical literature and I therefore I wont advise using Voltaren, ESPESCIALLY not during the 3rd trimester due to a risk of pulmonary hypertension in the little one.
