Topic: 9 months pregnant with a cold

Suggestions on any relief?  Nose that is alternately stuffed and running, itchy eyes, sore itchy throat, cough, tight chest, body aches.  Nausea is back full force too, so I've been throwing up just about everything I eat the last 2 days, so all cures must be tummy gentle!

Re: 9 months pregnant with a cold

I'm sorry I don't have a suggestion for a miracle cure. I wish I did though. I just thought I'd share that I think it's really, really rude for you to be pregnant and sick. That's a bum wrap indeed. I hope you feel better soon and are able to stay hydrated.

Re: 9 months pregnant with a cold

I was 7 months pregnant with one of the worst colds in my lfe and it was miserable! I found sinus rinses to be a lifesaver.  Also I found a recipe for home made cough syrup..,,I tbsp meduka honey, 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar.  That actually did seem to help a lot.  And lemon ginger tea....I lived of it.  I hope you feel better!

I hope you feel better soon, and keep him in until you get over it!

Don't forget a nice steamy bathroom too

Re: 9 months pregnant with a cold

Sorry Goobie. I have had the flu for over a week and I am not pregnant. I cannot imagine dealing with this while pregnant. I was ready to knock myself out for the duration.Hope you get better sooner rather than later. Soups and light drinks 7-up and all. Tea with honey

Re: 9 months pregnant with a cold

ACV tea with honey, echinacea, garlic capsules, eucalyptus EO in your bath, emergen C twice a day, steamy showers, lots of fluids. The more fluids you put in your body, the more fluid you will excrete (which is how the sickness leaves your body) lots of nose blowing, etc. Natural chicken bone broth (not store bought). I really hope you get to feeling better. This just takes being miserable to a whole other level.

Re: 9 months pregnant with a cold

Thanks all.  I'm pounding back the fluids (and peeing every time I cough because of it), resting as much as possible, eating as healthy as I can, and avoiding the world for fear of turning into a homicidal manic.
