Feeling ill, what can I take to help?


I was thinking of having one paracetamol to help but Iím feeling terribly rotten!

Throat and sinuses feel crappy, feeling very achey all in my neck and some chills.

Generally pain and wanting to feel human.

Anything else you guys know of thatís pregnancy safe?

I went to the pharmacist and grabbed paracetamol for now. I sometimes get a bit of a tonsil flare up if I’m fighting something off and it usually goes within a day but I don’t think this is going to go if I feel awful in the morning I might call the doctors xxx

Trying to drink plenty n luckily my partner has given himself a few hours off work so I tried to nap while him n my son played. Don’t feel much better but the bad aches aren’t as painful right now

Benadryl is safe for the sinuses and try hot lemon honey tea for your throat hope you feel better

I've not felt too much movement today. It's been more gentle and I'm even unsure if some of it is like gas bubbles or something? I called triage and said to head up just to check heartbeat. Can't leave yet as my partners out and he's not answering yet. I've felt something, but he's been moving a lot more the last three weeks, especially more belly kicks. But no belly kicks today. Just random twitching directly on my bladder or cervix INCREDIBLY low down. Like I'm feeling the odd twitch in my bum type of low!

But it's so light in comparison, and not the type of movement I'm used to. I don't have a high high temp, only 38.2 degrees c, I think I'm being paranoid because I feel so rotten. But I thought he'd be quite a bit more active by now so thought it'd be worth calling.

Just drank half a bottle of ice cold water and hes not really done his little dance

My partners phone died so while I was waiting for him I fell asleep because I felt so rotten. But luckily I woke up to lots of kicking much higher up and I’ve had it through the night and still going on! He’s having a good kick right now actually, So that’s s relief!!

He must have gotten himself into a more hidden position for the majority of the day yesterday!

He hasn’t hidden away for a while so it just got a bit worrying while I’m also feeling run down.

Paracetamol is finally taking the edge off and I’m feeling far more human! I’ve been taking my temperature and it’s never gotten too high so as long as I don’t feel any worse from today then I think I’ll be okay.

The doctors never have any damn appointments

Doctor wouldn't be likely to prescribe much else anyway, hope you are feeling better soon! Xx

Still feeling really awkward. Body aches have mostly gone in comparison to what they were. But I’ve lost my voice since yesterday and my chest has been feeling pretty rough on the mornings and nights. I’m calling up for a Saturday appointment if they can manage to understand my strained whisper on the phone!

Baby has been moving, but I am now worried that the illness isn’t really calming down enough yet so want it to be over quickly now so baby is okay!
