  • I *think* you can take Sudafed but if you do you have to drink LOTS of water as it can dehydrate you. Call a local pharmacy and they will tell you what you can take. That is what I always did when I was sick and pregnant.

  • they nest for what you described is saline solution, the kind you shoot up your nose. It helps dry things out so you head isn't all clogged and then it stops the dripping down the throat that makes it sore. I know it sounds to easy but it has worked the best when I have the symptoms you described. The I take some Tylenol with it for the pain. plus it won't make you drowsy... I hope it helps and you feel better soon!

  • You can either ride it out, or call your gyob and they will tell you which over the counter medicines you can take during pregnancy. Good luck.
