Am I right in thinking the only thing I can take is paracetamol?

Yes, unfortunately!

Oh how rubbish! I felt it start coming on last night, and I had my flu jab this morning so I think I'm in for a fun few days!!

I sympathise. I had loads of colds when I was pregnant, was rubbish!

Yes. Have a slice of lemon with hot water and a squeeze of lemon as well. It's basically lemsip, but baby-safe.

You can still put some vapour rub into hot water and have a good sniff of the steam to clear your sinuses. But Any kind of tablets with decongestants in are a big no no I'm afraid.
