I think paracetamol is OK during pregnancy but lemsip contains other things so prob best to check. My favourite remedy for colds is camomile tea with lots of lemon and honey. Camomile tea is great for colds, reduces inflamation of the mucus membranes apparently. Tastes a lot nicer than Lemsip too!
ebb you'd need to add some weird aspartame aftertaste and then it would be like lempsip! god i really hate not being able to take meds. i'm so f-ing grumpy right now. prob due to 2 hours sleep per night since friday with my sick toddler. and dh who snores. and not to mention the worlds largest and most wriggly 34 week sized bump. argh. sorry to whinge. baby needs to come soon. need my body back............
Just paracetamol. Do you have karvol capsules for your toddler, maybe try one of those on a hanky to clear your head and nose.
I agree that camomiile tea with honey and lemon is very soothing.
Fresh air can really help too although a long walk might be the last thing you want right now. I have to walk everywhere with DS and I've noticed how being outside can really clear my sinuses also clears that foggy headed feeling from too much sleep deprivation.
