I find tea, with honey and a touch of bourbon(like a tablespoon) to be helpfully although it might be controversial :). tea hydrates, honey soothes, bourbon kills the crud. I haven't been sick this time, but with Ellie I had the worst case of bronchitis. I wanted to die!

So sorry you are feeling so miserable! Have you tried steam? Sitting in the bathroom with hot water running in the shower might help, even if you can only manage a few minutes. I also agree with some hot tea, as hot as you can drink it.

I am not sick, but have been crabby, hormonal, and generally just an emotional wreck the past week! Poor DH...

((hugs)) i can sympathize - with my son's pregnancy I got a horrible cold at 32ish weeks that didn't go away completely till after he was born. Mine got really pretty bad - I sounded like I was coughing up a lung for 6 weeks! Just do whatever you can to provide relief and eat foods high in vitamin c and zinc. If your nose is bothering you saline solution can work miracles!
