1st Trimester

Major Irk!

I have a stuffed up nose and cough. I go to a " clinic ', sit down and see a sign saying ' we do not see pregnant women ' I think ok. I told the nurse I was preggers. And, asked if she had any advice what medicine I could take. She suggested Claritin. She told me it is safe for the baby. Well, I am in the medicine aisle. My gut told me to call my gyno- office and ask them what I could take. Good thing I did! She told me Claritin is not safe and Robitussin is your best bet. Point of this rant....... Mama's to be go with your gut. No matter if a board certified nurse says other wise!!!
