I have had a bad cough since Monday just a tickle one and only snotty in the morning.

I suppose slightly more worried due to swine flu in the press but I'm not feverish or anything. Normally I would take some cough mixture and sit it out but I'm 13 weeks 5 days pregnant and nit sure whether should visit DRs or whether that would be stupid??? When I get going on a cough I feel a little wheezy but not hard of breathing. This is not constant tho.

Also is taking paracetemol good for coughs and colds I mean other than reducing temperatures and pain but when helping trying to treat it???y

I suddenly feel really thick about being I'll but more so because I don't like taking anything with little bubs tucked way!!

I have had my swine flu jab.

Any help or advice would be appreciated.

I wouldn't go to the gp, no
you've had the flu injection so don't worry

No don't bother GP. I am 15 weeks and full of cold, saw mw today and she just said paracetomol for temp and pain and plenty of fluids. I don't think paracetomol will help you get better, just feel better while you have the cold.
