I had to be off work for about a month due to low blood pressure and I really don't want to be off again (I teach). That said, I've got the bug that's going round: bones feel cold and sore and throat feels like I've swallowed razor blades. You can tell from the daft hour that I'm posting that it's stopping me sleeping and I'm exhausted. It started Sunday but really kicked in last night. So far I've just had paracetamol and hot water with lemon and honey but is that all I can take? 27 weeks at the moment.
Try adding slices of fresh ginger to your lemon & honey tea. Many homeopathic remedies are safe during pregnancy - consult a qualified homeopath for advice. Steam inhalers are great! Obviously drinking plenty of water is key. Eat little & often. Boost your vitamin C intake from the foods you're eating. Try to get as much sleep as possible (easier said than done). Avoid sugar if you can - it impairs the immune system.
