    Hi there,

    I have a question about being sick with a cold while pregnant. I've had a bit of a cold for the last week, nothing serious and no fever just a stuffy nose and a bit of coughing. I'm not taking anything for it and I assume it will just pass. However, my husband caught whatever I have and he is much sicker than I am. The doctor says he has a sinus and chest infection. I don't think I have this but it's making me worry. Is there anything you should do when you get sick? I would hate to just leave it and then have something happen later. I would call my doctor but she has already left on holidays.

    Thanks in advance

    just rest drink fluids and u can take paracetamol! your immune system is supressed in pregnancy so u r more likely 2 catch colds etc.
