39 weeks pregnant and full of the cold

Really congested and generally feeling sorry for myself. Had been eagerly awaiting labour, but now worried it starts before I feel better.

Does anyone have any good tried and tested natural remedies? Was drinking honey and lemon, but it is making my heartburn worse.

I found vicks vapour rub and olbas oil good. I developed sinusitis but it cleared quickly by snorting weak saline solution and spitting it out (really disgusting but amzingly effective). As a last resort, some of the nasal sprays are considered OK for use during pregnancy (only a tiny fraction gets into the bloodstream compared to oral decongestants).

Thank you for the suggestions. Going to give the vicks a try and take it from there. Have been feeling pretty good for the last few weeks. Really annoyed to have the cold now.
