    Urgh ive got some form of chesty/throat infection i think. Cant get hold of drs as its saturday and they only give out an emergency number which i dont think is necessary as im okish!
    I have the worst cough ive ever had and wondered if anyone has any ideas on what i can take or any remidies that have worked for them?
    I also feel awful for the baby as each time i cough he really kicks me hard at the moment. Sounds stupid but i dont want him to dislike me before he is even here lol :(

    Have you tried some warm water and honey that should help your throat and cough - also hot water and lemon can help. If you have any peppermint essential oils (or can get someone to go get some) you can breath some of that in via steam - though only use a couple of drops as it is very strong - also lavender rubbed in using a carrier oil to your chest and top of your back can help.
