  • Definitley fluids, rest, and vitamin C. It's not so east having a cold while preggo since you can't take much medicine! I know how you feel! My doc did approve sudafed though...the non-drowsy kind.

  • Rest. Drink lots of water and OJ. Long steamy showers.

  • I suggest sleep and lots of clear fluids like those above, but my midwife told me that LORATADINE (an OTC allergy med) was safe to take while pregnant. It helped a little bit, but I was miserable for almost a month with that cold.
