    The antihistamines chlorpheniramine, loratadine, doxylamine, brompheniramine, phenindamine, pheniramine, triprolidine, and diphenhydramine are considered low risk during pregnancy, but they can make you sleepy, especially doxylamine and diphenhydramine/


    If you go to the website address...there is much information on the right meds to use!

    Hope ya feel better real soon!

  • Pick your favorite tea and add honey and lemon to it. It may taste a little weird if you are using something like peppermint. I would suggest either regular lipton hot tea or maybe chamomile.

  • yeah i drank tea alot when i was pregnant if i had a cold or something

    but also 2, i'm not sure about the other mommies but i had a (wat my mom and doctor called it) a "pregnancy cold" it wasn't a bug or a common cold, it was a cold litterly brought on from my pregnancy. my DD wanted me to have a cold so i guess she gave me a cold and i was around the 4..maybe 5 month mark when i had gotten it.

  • Tylenol cold Nighttime! If you're paranoid about it talk to your doctor. But all the stuff in it is actually okay to take. no joke. I took it during my last pregnancy and I used it with this one when I was sick twice.
