    I have had a cold for the last couple of weeks and the sore throat is really getting me down. Ican hardly talk its in constant pain and Ihave coughing fits that make me vomit. OH and I cant sleep in the same bed as Imake to much noise keep coughing and retching, and I can only find really mild strepsils to take during pregnancy, I cant even take the decent ones that numb your throat.

    Poor me!

    Sucking icecubes works for me too.

    Or the good old honey and lemon in warm water.

    Hope you feel better soon hunnie.
