  • You can also take a warm (not hot) bath to break up the mucus. Get a bath thermometer (like the ones you get for babies) with the numbers along the side, and don't let the water get over 100 degrees. Soak yourself as long as you like, and be sure to take naps when you can. You can also try saline drops in your nose. They helped me a little, but the Tylenol, Sudafed and Robitussin were really what helped.

  • i never took any kind of medicine when i was pregnant. because you never know if it will harm the baby or not.

    you just deal with it and be on the save side... have been my thoughts.

  • i used saline nasal spray, and organic cough drops...and LOTS AND LOTS of sleep and liquids...lemon tea (caff. free) helped soothe the throat!

  • im 7 1/2 months pregnant and i have a cold. but there is no medication that will MAKE YOUR cold go away, it can relieve some of the symptoms for a while, but its still there.

    i wuoldnt take ANY medication without letting my dr know if i were you but i also wouldnt take ANY medication in the VERY beginning of my pregnancy.

  • I agree with Kelso, this early in your pregnancy I wouldn't take anything.... not even Tylenol Cold and sinus. Eccenashia I am not sure about, but you can ask. I think I was told not to take it.
