    Congratulations! What wonderful news! I don't believe that cold and flu tablets are majorly dangerous during pregnancy. Just stop taking them for now and speak to your gp or a pharmacist.
    The cold and flu that's going around is a b!tch!! My DS (5 mo) and I have it and I can't take codral as it can dry up your milk supply - so annoying! I've learned to suffer and wait it out.
    All the best with your pregnancy!
