I have developed a bad dry cough since yesterday which is painful in my chest. No other symptoms apart from overall flabbiness and headache. My temperature was normal all day yesterday, now I have 37.1 C (didn't sleep well obviously).
I have Vicks VapoRub and 500mg paracetamol pills at home (not sure what dose and how often is recommended?). Any advice on was I can take or do to fight this. I am exactly 12 weeks today, first pregnancy and first cold in pregnancy, so have no clue.
Hi Sue, I am suffering with similar symptoms, I know this will sound old fashioned but I find soaking a tea towel in very warm olive oil and putting it on my chest very relieving. To avoid getting it on my clothes I put a dry one on top too. This is something my midwife recommended last week. Hope you feel better soon
Thank you everybody. I emailed my consultant and she said 1000 mg paracetamol up to 4 times a day is ok. Sounds like bloody a lot to me, so only taking 500mg at a time. Hubby is going to get more honey and a cough sirup too.
