    I'm feeling really under the weather at the minute, and have bletheritus in my eye, tonsilitus in my throat, and a miscellaneous ear infection.

    Anyone else found that they have started being a petry dish for germs?! I'm desperatly trying to think of ways to up my immune system, because I'm fed up of being ill; cant be good for sprogling...

    I think Echinacea is good for boosting your immune system, You can buy it in hard boiled sweets form. I would ask your MW or Doctor about taking it first though as I honestly dont know if its safe in pregnancy.

    Hope this helps a bit

    Orange juice, or anything with lots of vitamin C will boost immunity. I like drinking hot water with honey and lemon juice when I'm feeling bad - I don't think it helps immunity, but is definitely soothing.
