Second question: I posted earlier about a dry throat, but since then I have developed a sore throat. Is there anything I can safetly take?

For the sore throat gargle with warm salt water several times a day. You can also try honey wich is a natural antibacterial maybe tea with honey and lemon.

Idk if you read my comment on your other post about the dry throat but I experienced the same thing at 12 weeks, first a dry throat, then a sore throat and coughing, after three weeks of coughing I was then diagnosed with pregnancy induced asthma....you should get check out with your doctor!

@robin I went to the er because I can't be seen by my doctor until August 23rd when she gets back from vacation. I asked them about that so they checked my lungs and all that good stuff and it wasn't. They said its just a chest/head cold.
