This is so miserable! I can't stop coughing and my throat hurts! I will be so happy when it is gone. I spoke with a mom at DD's school (she's an OB) and she told me it was safe to take Robitussin and so I tried that last night out of desperation with no luck I am so over this, lol!
Must be common, because add me to the club!! Kevin has such a bad cold that he took the day off Friday- first time he's taken a day off in 4 years!! and now my throat is burning/coughing/body aches/ runny nose... Yesterday I ran to the store to grab cough drops and texted my friend to ask if pectin was ok and she said no cough drops during first trimester and i was like WHAT?!?! th en she said she googled it and pectin is ok- so I got some ludens, and some hard candys to suck...
Ugh.. oh welll hopefully it'll help mask preg symptoms so when it's over I feel a lot better- har har har
Right there with you. I have had a cold/cough for going on 2 weeks now. I don't cough all the time or anything but when I do get a fit it really sucks. My 3yo ds has it too. I had it when I saw my MW a week ago Thurs and she said she thought it was just viral then. I am sooo done with this crappola too! Sorry you guys have it as well.
Try running a humidifier and use Vick's vaporub. Also, when I had a cold while pg, I relied heavily on Ricola throat drops (not the cough drops, because they have menthol, and that really upset my tummy).

Well I give up I need a medical professional! Ugh! I am pretty sure I have a sinus infection and my head is pounding. This on top of the hacking mucus cough that, as I am sure you can imagine, does nothing to help my nausea. Everytime I get a coughing fit it makes my head pound worse. Just a head's up dont ever google head aches when you cough, scary sh!t, relatively sure none of it applies to me, but I have a bit of hypochondria bc of my anxiety disorder. In fact my dh and I have a "no googling symptoms" agreement lol and my therapist wholeheartedly approves. But I broke it however I was able to reason with my broken mind and figure if I had a brain tumor, malformed skull, or my brain was protruding from the base of my skull my neurologist (I have migraines, ick) would have noticed by now. I am calling my midwife tomorrow I think it is time for an antibiotic. If I can stomach it. I got some ludens for my cough but I cant eat them they turn my stomach, like anything else slightly sweet that I try to eat. I got robitussin down but briefly thought it might come back up but I managed. I think it has helped my cough some hopefully I can sleep.
