    Horrible horrible cold!!! I feel sick, my throat is on fire, my nose is running, my ears hurt +( anyone have any ideas on what I can do to shift this? I was told not to go to the doctors if you just got a cold as there's nothing you can really do but rest. Will my baby be okay?! Xxx

    I've had so many colds since falling pregnant, it's just because your immune system lowers so your body doesn't reject baby.
    Just plenty of rest, fluids and if you have a sore throat, hot water with a splash of honey and lemon (natural), for a blocked nose just inhale steam, you can use eucalyptus if you need to (just 2-3 drops), baby will be fine :)

    Hope you're feeling better chick :(
    The week I found out I was pregnant I had THE worst flu in the world! I was taking ibuprofen (which you're not meant to in pregnancy apparently :shock: ) and taking sleeping tablets, the whole lot!!!

    bubby is fine, so I'm sure it didn't do much damage!!

    A week before i found out i was pregnant i had an horrendous cold and cause we were on holiday in rome i was soooo dosed up on extra strength paracetemol so that i could enjoy the hol but it doesnt seem to have caused any harm.

    Im pretty certain i read somewhere that pregnant women can suffer a lot with colds? I was told by my doctor that i could still take normal paracetemol?

    Paracetamol is fine if you don't exceed dosage, ibuprofen etc aren't good though :)
