I'm getting sick! What can I take?

I can feel the beginnings of a cold setting in, and usually this would be the time I would drink a Hot Toddy and be all better in the am.. but I can't because it has Whiskey in it! Any ideas what I can take? I don't really do a lot of "traditional" store-bought meds, especially now I'm pg. Thanks!

  • the only thing that helped me was coricidin. (spelling) nothing in it will harm the baby. my doc said that is the best cold medicine a preg. woman can take. i would take that and sit in a hot vapor bath(johnson's makes some) and that will not harm baby. and i would lay in bed for about 24 hours watching tv or reading a book with a vaporizer going. hope you kick it soon
