  • What kind of appointment? A check up for being pregnant you mean? Why would you cancel an appointment with a DOCTOR over being sick? I mean really, its a DOCTOR. I had the flu when I was pregnant. My OB was so kind as to give me some medication I could take to help me get over it & not hurt the baby in the process.

  • its actually better for you to go because then he can tell you how to make yourself feel better and they are used to women coming in sick my drs office always has at least one in there...ive been the sick one a few times with this pregnancy but trust me if you cover your mouth and have some peppermints to help sidetrack the coughing you should be may want to bring some water too
