Pregnancy and a cold / flu

Hi there

I'm 9 weeks pregnant and are comming down with a cold or flu. Blocked nose and slight fever (aircon at work I'm sure!!!). Is there anything I can take that's save to relief the symptoms? I'm too scared to even use vicks.

Thanks SP

Hi SP,

I'm just getting to the end of my cold now, all I used was Panado for the fever and I just boosted up on Vit C, and it seemed to have done the trick. If you don't feel better withing a couple of days, rather go see your doctor.

Hope you feel better soon!!!

Hi there

I am sure if you go to your local pharmacy they would be able to give you something. Just tell them in advance that you are pregnant. If you still feel unsure, ask your doc to fax you a prescription of something that you can take.

Hope you feel better real soon...
