  • Good ole Sudafedrine. (from the pharmacy, not the OTC) You can also use Afrin nose spray if you're stuffy. :)

  • You can use cough drops, just use them as recommended. I had a cold during this pregnancy too, so annoying, but there are medicines you can take also, I just chose not too. Also, if you get a fever of 101 or higher call dr ASAP.
