Cold and Flu during pregnancy


Hello,

Just wondering if any of you's have had the cold or flu during your pregnancy? I'm 13 weeks (not sure if im first or second trimester as its very confusing!! lol) and had either a bad cold or the flu, not sure it was the flu as it's only really lasted 2-3 days. I took paracetamol to help maintain my temp as i was getting a bit hot (made sure i kept my tummy cool tho!) Just worried about wee Beanie! Used my doppler and heart rate is a little higher than normal but still under 160

xxx

Just got over a cold, and I swear its worse in pregnancy. As long as you keep your temp down I think there's nothing to worry about too much.

I took a couple of paracetamol. A nice home made honey and lemon drink would sort out a stuffy nose and sore throat, and do no harm to bubs. xx

I've had hot lemon and honey too. Helped a little. Agree that it is a real pain having a cold when pregnant. It seems worse I think from not being able to get lemsip down your neck. I'm sure we will be fine.
