    Default 38 weeks & have gotten a horrible cold.. any home remedies?!

    I'm 38 weeks and have gotten a nasty cold.. my nose is running like a tap and my eyes are watery as well... the chemist gave me polaramine to take but it only does so much.. I just want my nose to stop it's driving me insane! Not to mention I feel awful as it is with pre-labour pains etc..

    so anything that would help would be appreciated!! I'm worried if I have this cold still and have the baby, he has no immune system, so i would be passing it to him straightaway...

    I doubt very much you will still have your cold! But my babies have never caught any bugs I have had from me when I have been breastfeeding them. I do t have any miracle suggestions sorry just rest drink loads of water and try to avoid panadol as it increases the length of colds.
