Pregnant and Sick with a Cold

  1. Ugh!

    I have had a massive sore throat for the last three days and a stuffy head/runny nose. I have tried gargling salt water, using a vaporizer, saline solution for my nose... but oh, I still feel so bad.

    Does anyone else have any "natural" recommendations on how to get over this thing or at least make it more bearable?

    I had a cold a couple weeks ago, and I did the gargling salt water thing which made me gag everytime. I used vicks vapour rub on my chest and a bit under my nose to help my sinuses. I also bought some lemon & ginger tea to sip on as well as cough drops.

    Me too, I've had it all weekend. Lots of hot drinks or ice lollies help. As well as drinking plenty of water and keeping yourself warm and rested.
