Paracetamol is safe at your stage but do stay away from ibuprofen, it can affect the development of the circulation. But taking paracetamol and thus reducing pain (therefore stress hormones) and reducing your temp is good.
I had a serious painful kidney condition caused by pregnancy. I'll always love the pain doctor who sat me down and said "mrs Weegie, if you want to do the best for your baby, look after yourself. Take the medicine (and the medicine was morphine!). But she was 100% ok and I got better.
Paracetamol and hot drinks. There are some over the counter throat sweets you can get but I am not sure what they would be called in the UK - ask at your pharmacy. If you think it is tonsillitis you should go to your doctor.
Oh, just seen you're going tomorrow. Paracetamol then tonight. I think you can go up to 3g in a 24 hour period during pregnancy. It was all I had during my recent three week long cold...
Coughing up green flem can be sign of infection, so perhaps a visit to docs in order? I had a chest infection in first preg and ended up on antibiotics- which were fine to take. Have you tried manuka honey- having a teaspoon of it to soothe your throat- has really good soothing and healing properties. They sell it v expensively in health food shops and supermarkets- but also for I think £3.99 in aldi!
Hi, I have the exact same problem just now, its horrible! Unable to sleep and ive now got earache added to it, dont think i can cope much longer. Doctor said I've just to take paracetamol n ride it out I've been drinking lemon and ginger tea with manuka honey and I've ordered apple cider vinegar that's coming tomorrow it's meant to help with throat and sinus problems.
