I'm Sick! :(

So I am just wondering if anyone has any really good home/herbal remedies for colds. I have a major killer cold right now and it is making me miserable. I have cough syrup but it's really hard for me to take, and I don't really like taking drugs especially since I am pregnant. So if any of you know of any good things I can do, please please let me know!!

If it is sinus/congestion related, I recommend giving a neti-wash a try. Its weird, but its drug free. Make sure you get the right salt to water ratio.
There's also oranges, lots and lots of oranges. And don't forget chicken noodle soup and ramen noodles. Lots of broth.

Be careful with herbal remedies. And even though you don't like drugs, call your OB and ask what is safe to take, because if you aren't healthy, then it isn't helping your baby at all either. Sometimes it's just better to take the drugs.

Soup is my only recommendations. Check with your doctor about anything else. Hope you get better soon. Love you.

Dude, just take Tylenol cold and sinus. They have a day and night formula. I took it a million times when I was pregnant because I was practically on my death bed with a cold I caught. That's safe to take while prego and it will make you feel better. Good luck :).
