I don't think it will do anything to your baby. Ginger tea would be fine to drink...same with honey and lemon tea...it's good to soothe a sore throat as well.
I would talk to your doctor or pharmacist to see what type of medicine you can take. I had a cough last week and was thinking more than anything that the baby is probably mad at me because it's being tossed around in there! LOL
You'll be ok....drink plenty of fluids and take some extra vitamin C as well.....that's all I took and it really helped!

hey, I had this early in my pregnacy and was really really worried, i saw a doctor who said it wasnt an infection so just advised paracetamol and water, that seemed to work a little but not as much as hot drinks and rest. Ive also read that ginger tea is ok to drink, just try to google it and im sure youll get the answer for that one :)
