    might sound like a really stupid question but will having a cold in later pregnancy do any harm to the baby? I am 38 weeks and my OH has had 'man flu' the last few days. Although i am normally quite resilient when it comes to colds I can feel one brewing.

    I've just been doctors as I have had a cold and sore throat for a week and now it has developed into a chest infection I'm really not one for seeing the doctor and probably wouldn't have gone had I not been pregnant. I was really bothered about taking antibiotics while pregnant but doctor says it's fine and it's best to nip this in the bud before it develops further as I'm 36 weeks pregnant so all I would say is just keep an eye on things and see gp if you get any worse......better to be safe than sorry.

    I'm currently suffering with cold and sore throat. Won't affect LO unless it got much worse, like into a chest infection etc as mummy2b73 mentioned. Just have to be very careful what medication you take that's all.
