Drink Chamomile Tea with some lime.  And warm baths ... bundle up and sleep it away.  Also rub some of the children's vaporub - - The Tylenol soothing rub.  It's not so greasy like the adult vaporub and it works well.

Geeze, I did got thru a little bit of a cruddy cold a few months back. I'm pregnant with my 2nd child so I've been thru this before. My doc gave me a list of things that I could take with the robitussin being one. I was able to take one that wasn't the plain old robitussin but I don't want to cause you any problems with your pregnancy so I'd go with the doc advice. One thing that did help me was a wet washcloth on my head or back of my neck. It just made he feel better. Oh yeah, use the Breathe Right nasal strips too! They really help open the passages so at least make it easier to breathe without the use of meds.

I'm sorry you feel so crappy, I remember my cousin told me to use peppermint oil and you can rub it on your sinus cavities, and also on your temples.  This help me ALOT.
Hope this helps you to feel better soon!!Smile
