Expecting #1 (a boy!) on January 16, 2013
I'm just getting over a cold myself (after having it for 10 days), but I did take meds. After being sick for four days, pregnant, and working full time, I figured it was time to take care of myself for the baby. We called the doc and they approved Sudafed to dry things up. I took that for a day, but it didn't help my phlegmy cough, so we called back and they said to take Robotusson. I took that for about two days (and stopped the Sudafed).
I did have a couple of co-workers that had colds, a cousin, and I work with little kids, so it's untelling who I caught it from. I gave it to FIL and DH. Plus, I was throwing up on Sunday, but I think that was because my stomach didn't agree with what I ate.
Hope you ladies find some relief soon because it does suck being sick, especially when pregnant.
