That's safe for baby.
I feel like I may have the flu but not positive because I've never had it.

I'm not sure for the flu. The only thing I've ever taken is Tylenol. I hope you feel better soon!

If you think you have the flu, call your dr.  Having the flu while pregnant can be very dangerous. Drink lots of water and if you can, eat lots of fruits and veggies (they really are our best medicine!).  Othe than that, Tylenol is safe to take during pregnancy to relieve some minor symptoms.  Ibuprofen is NOT.

Tylenol based products. Theraflu. Robitussin. Sudifed if you're out of your first trimester. Mucinex.

Thank you. I called my doc he said if I'm not running a fever of at least 101.0 I prolly don't have the flu. He said I can take robitussin and Sudafed. And if I start running high fever he will prescribeTamiflu.

Tylenol, tums, and saline nasal spray.. that's all I could take for the flu :( call up your dr. or midwife to see if they have any suggestions though. The best medicines, of course, are rest and fluids. Dehydration is more of a problem for pregnancy, so really force those fluids!
