How do you cope with a cold while pregnant?
Just curious if anyone has any med-free ways to get rid
of a cold? Before pregnancy I would always rely on cough meds, but obviously that's not an option!!!   Thanks ladies!

i used those shower soothers things when i just could not breathe anymore. they are big fizzy tablets you put in the shower and stand over them. worked pretty well. also a humidifier seemed to help. i had bronchitis and ended up on antibiotics too though :(. tylenol is safe and okay too.

also drink lots and lots of liquids and plenty of orange juice since the vitamin c boosts your poor pregnancy suppressed immune system.

i hope you feel better soon

A cold air mister is great.  Don't get a hot water one.

Saline spray for your nose is great too.

To help you get over your symptoms quicker i suggest, vitamin C, multivitamins and garlic tablets.  Without these i don't know what i would do.  I used to get about 4 colds every winter.  I've been taking these for two years and now i don't get colds like i used to.  I get maybe one a year and the symptoms are slight.  It may not seem like they are a quick fix but they really reduced the severity of the symptoms for me, good luck :)

Hello!  I'm 3 months pregnant with a cold with bronchitis!  Please Help Meeeeeee :):(:(...

My prenatal nurse told me lots of liquids and Tylenol if I have pain.  I didn't tell her I have bronchitis or would that even matter!  Anyone any suggestions that you may have even gotten from your doctors being pregnant would be greatly appreciated.  Should I go to the ER?  No right?  I don't know I'm just miserable and also have lots of phelm.  I haven't been sick in over 10yrs.

Thanks,
Angelique  ***@****

How do you know it's bronchitis?  I would see the Dr. and go from there.  Not much for a cold though, but what you were told.
