I have a stinking cold which I can cope with but now it has turned into a really annoying tickly cough which is driving me mad. Just been to pharmacy to see if anything I can take the woman just said "tuff", great. Any suggestions as not sleeping and keep thinking I am going to cough by "bean" out!!! xxx
I can really sypathise with you. I got a hideous cold when I was only 5 weeks and it seemed to linger for ages ending with an awful cough to the point I thought I was going to cough up the bean too! Everyone at work got it, but I was the only wuss who really suffered. I had to take a couple of days off work once the cold subsided a I was absolutley flattened. Obviously, no-one at work knew why I was suffering with the cold more than anyone else! I also drank hot lemon which I pretended was lemsip - full of loads of drugs that would make me feel better Take care and I hope you get better soon.
I have a horrible cold/cough. How far along are you? I have been medicating with hot honey and lemon, lockets and lots of chocolate. The last two nights I have had a hot toddy before bed with a small dash of whisky () to help me sleep. But it is hell, and no doctor or pharmacist has been able to prescribe me anything (this is what feels like my fiftieth cold since being pregnant - I'm 34 weeks). There really isn't anything for it. Just make sure you get enough fluids and stay warm. Feel better soon.
Onions slowly stewed in honey, and then drain the juice off, and drink it. Apparently.
Cough meds don't work, anyway. Not sure it'll make you feel better. Drink nice warm drinks (not too hot) - try that 'hot squash' like spiced berry, always makes me feel better when I'm ill. Or try a hot lemon and honey toddy with the most minute amount of whisky - won't harm you or the baby and will taste good and medicinal!
i feel for u as i am also suffering from that cold from hell i am drinking warm ribena with lenon and honey and am taking 1 paracetamol every other day or so. This is the first cold that has floored me i even took 4 days off work which i never do. I hope u feel better soon.
