Second day with the flu and feel shocking

Paracetemol isn't touching it.
I've got a chesty hacking cough (that keeps making me wee!), shivers, my skin doesn't feel my own and achy bones.
Poor DS2 is also unwell with it, so he's up pretty much most of the last two nights.
I'm so frustrated with not being able to take anything. I know I can't, but I just feel so rough.
DH can't take time off at the moment, my mum came over yesterday to let me rest, but I just want to curl under a duvet and keep warm. DS2 is very mummy-ish at the moment, so I feel guilty he isn't getting my fully attention.
Sorry, I know nothing anyone can say, but feeling fed up and sorry for myself.
Any pregnancy friendly things I can take? My appetite is zero, so I'm worrying baby isn't getting what he needs.

I think I have the same thing, really really painful cough that makes my bump hurt! I'm hoping I don't go into labour quite yet as have no energy at all (39 wks today).

No advice, sorry. I've been drinking hot water with teaspoon of honey and slice of lemon which has eased the throat scratching a little.

Hope you feel better soon flowers

Thanks Craftycottontail. I've sent DH out for lemons and honey! So glad he is back and I can just go to bed. It's horrid not being able to take any proper medicine isn't it. Hope you feel better soon.
