Home Remedies

So I am 18 days or less away from meeting my little one and of course I am now getting a cold :/ any natural home remedies that worked for u ladies? I want to avoid it turning into a cough as I will be having a csection and I had an awful cough with my 1st. it was sooo painful to cough with the incision  and resulted in me getting an infection that took longer for me to heal...not pleasant :( any help would be appreciated :)

I have a cold right now also and I'm 11 days away from my due date. I've been taking warm showers to help break everything up and something my nana gave me growing up that works for me is warm lemon water with honey.  I hope this works for you.

Not sure if pregnant women can take cough drops which should be aloud because your aloid to take throat losengers. Boil cough drops, lemon juice and onion in a pot of water with some tea bags. Works wonders!

Oooh thanks ladies! Have any of u tried the half of an onion on the night stand at night? Was thinking of doing that but not sure if I want to be smelling that all night but I guess not being sick would be worth it

Same here 23 days away and all of a sudden started showing symptoms of a cold two days ago so I've spent the last couple. In bed drinkinglemon tea( with theraflu, you can only have one pack a day so you might want to use half a pack in two cups to spread it out) it works wonders plus taking halls which you can only have a few and they have to be hours apart or they'll start contractions I've been sitting in the kitchen over the stove while water is boiling inhaling to help loosen up the mucous in my chest and of course eating soup, and crackers drinking orange juice. I seem to have caught it early enough that I never caught the cough b just soar throat(which is gone) and a runny nose
