35 weeks pregnant and I have a nasty head cold,I'm miserable. Is there any otc med other than tylenol that you took while you were pregnant?

Tylenol isn't cutting it. :(
I've never taken anything other than that....cause really, I know they say your not supposed to.
But have you ever taken any other kind of cold medicine that your doctor approved of? Yeah, I'm calling them in a bit..just would like to know other pregnant mamas experiences.
Thankyou :)
