i had flu in early pregnancy, it was hell so i feel your pain! unfortunately paracetamol is all you can take, i put hot water in a bowl with some vicks in it and breathed it in under a towel and that really helped. just try and rest hun, hopefully you can get thru it! mine lasted over 2 weeks it was horrible. feel better soon x

Major virus going around in my area (California) and I have been sick with it for over a week now with little signs that it's letting up!

I feel your pain, girls! Tylenol just isn't cutting it right now!

Aww no. I've had a stinking cold for a week now. The only thing I take is paracetomol. BUT! honey and lemon drink, orange juice and strawberries seem to help as they are all high in vitamin c. Also if you have a stuffed up nose inhale over a bowl of hot water with a towel on your head as it will break up the mucus. I hope you feel better soon!
