I've got a rotten cold coming on, but I'm 13 weeks pregnant and my dr is of the firm opinion that I shouldn't take anything medicinal. I also have a four year old DD and work full time so no chance of sleeping it off. Does anyone know if there's anything I CAN take without risk bump?

Try Olbas oil on a hanky to sniff if you nose is blocked or runny. Also put some in a bowl of hot water then towel over your head to breathe in the steam. For a sore throat manuka honey from NZ works well, also sucking on boiled sweets. And lots of fluids, like juice. Hope you feel better soon.

Also when you get home, easy meals and no chores!!

Luckily DP is cooking tonight and DD has very kindly tidied her toys up smile I've heard about the manuka honey before, think I'll see if I can grab some. Thank you smile
