At 14 weeks I had strep and the flu. I was able to take Amoxicillian and REGULAR old fashion Robatussin. Thats it. Right now I have bronchitis and Im miserable. I am again on the same meds. Hope you feel bettes!

I usually don't take meds for a sore throat anyway, so when I had one a little earlier in my pregnancy, I did my usual sore throat rituals of sucking on hard candy, eating Italian ice, and at other times gargling with warm salt water.  It worked out nicely that Italian ice was one of the few things that didn't make me queasy at that time lol

I have a nasty cold right now.

I have been resting as much as possible, drinking lots of liquids & taking Tylenol when I absolutely have to function.

Cough drops that aren't alcohol based.

Oh yeah. And because your immune system is all out of whack while pregnant it'll most likely linger. I used cough drops for my sore throat. Hope you find some relief mama
