Over the counter meds. and 1st trimester????

So I am only 5 weeks prego, and have a sinus infection that my husband gave me, I took 2 sinus relief pills this morning, and about 5 1/2 hours later took another 2. Then about half hour after I took the second ones I realized "HMMM Dumb ass, maybe you should read the back" and OF COURSE it said, "Consult your physician if you are pregnant or nursing" Should I be worried? Or is it really no biggie?

  • :-( call your doc. From here on out, any sickness goes through him. There are approved meds, he can tell you what you can take. I can tell you that my allergies have been really bad and all of the stuff my husband brought home was a no no. I checked the medications online (found a website called don't know how reliable it is, but it's better than no info), and they said not to take them, and since I can't remember the list of approved ones I got from the doc when I PG with my son and I haven't yet seen him for this PG, I can't take ANYTHING. Oh, except Tylenol.
