    im in the same boat hunny. Got a rotten cough and am really chesty too which is making my morning sickness worse. DH has been checking a cant seem to find anything deemed 'safe' to take.
    Looks like we're just going to have to ride it out.

    I've felt horrid the last couple of days, really high temperature (39.9 celsius!) and sore throat and dizzy. I've been taking paracetemol and been reassured by the lovely ladies on here that that's fine. Just be very careful with doseage. And not lemsip as that has something in it that can raise your heart rate or something?

    Hope we feel better soon!

    I've got a cough which is driving me mad, I got some cough linctus in Boots which is suitable during pregnancy and when breatfeeding. Have you been to the chemist and asked the pharmacist if they can recommend anything?

    Hi ladies
    Hope you're all feeling a bit better now! Can you use vicks vaporub, or karvol capsules to help ease your symptoms??
    If you get a high temp you should probably see your Dr as fever in pregnancy is something to watch out for, they may be able to give you advice on how best to lower it.
    Hope you all get well soon.

    Hiya

    I posted similr a few days ago. Tips I was given:

    Paracetamol
    Honey and lemon drinks
    vic vaporub
    breathing in steam (you know, bowl of water and towel)
    Drink plenty of water.

    All good advice I think. My cold is going now so hang in there as they do go.. Eventually!

    Like Jo banana had mentioned I made a jug of honey and lemon. It really does cut through any rubbish in your throat. The cold really does make MS worse. I feel terrible :wacko:
