Cold n flu during pregnancy remedies

I'm pretty sure you can also take panadol. It's just awful having a cold or flu when you're pregnant. Hope you feel better soon!

Decongestant nasal spray + paracetamol got me through. Panadeine is ok too. Avoid anti-inflammatories and decongestant tablets. Just go ask the Pharmacist.
You poor thing it sucks being sick at the best of times.

I found lemsip really good. But remember it contains paracetamol so account for that if you are taking panadol.

I was so sick last week and couldn't sleep with a cold so asked my obstetrician and he said phenergan and polarmine are ok. Only at night because they make you very drowsy. I only took phenergan one night and that was enough for me to catch up on some sleep and feel a bit better.
Apart from that just panadol and you can try inhaling steam with eucalyptus oil, put the eucalyptus oil in a small bowl of warm water and put a ttowel over your head, inhaling the steam will help clear your head.
I understand how you feel, im 25 weeks with a 2yo as well and being sick has been horrendous!
