  • Did you go to the doctor? I had bronchitis while pregnant. There is an antibiotic that's safe. You have to treat the strep.

  • let me put it in a easier way my throat is sore

    Just b/c you have a sore throat doesn't mean you have Strep... call you doc to find out if you need a culture and to find out what meds are safe. Decaff tea w/lemon & honey until you talk to the doc.

  • Go to the doctor. You can take antibiotics while pregnant. I had a sinus infection during both of my pregnancies.

  • I always got a cold with 3 of my pregnancies in the beginning of my 3rd trimester....definately call your doc they can usually print out a list of meds that are ok.
