    Aww hun, I really feel for you I got ill this time last week with a really bad cold and I felt bloody awful, and to top it off my husband was away in France until the following Monday so I had to suffer it alone! I took paracetamol and made my own lemsip but crushing the paracetamol adding some hot water, honey and lemon and basically just crashed out the whole weekend. Hope you feel better soon. (I do believe getting ill and being pregnant at the same time is worse) xxx

    Hope you feel better soon. I've just started to recover for something similar. Finally went to the doctors when I was sent home from work and was given antibiotics. Make sure you get plenty rest and fluids. It was the lack of sleep that was getting me as my throat felt so much worse when I lay down and I can't sleep sitting up at all!

    Get some power foods into you! It might be hard to get out of bed, but if you can go eat some oranges, cucumbers, bananas, and strawberries. All packed with stuff to up your energy, mood and vitamin C for your cold. get whatever you can! Or if you have it in the house, try hot green tea with a heaping spoon of honey and a 1/4 tsp cinnamon. That combination will a few times a day will punch that cold in the mouth!

    strawberries, cucumbers, oranges, spinach and or kale.
