So...tis the season for the virus. Visited family over the weekend and my nieces and nephew who are ALWAYS sick sneezed, coughed, and hugged all over me. So here I am, 18 weeks pregnant with a sore throat, cough, 2 ear aches, swollen lymph nodes, runny/stuffy nose, and an eye infection. I have been to the doctor twice, both times they have told me it's just a virus that needs to run its course. So, I have no choice but to take Tylenol and some antibiotic eye drops.
Does anyone have any other safe remedies for dealing with the symptoms? This is going on day 4 without improvement. I've tried lots of tea (caffeine free, of course), gatorade, soup, and Tylenol (which does nothing for the sore throat). I can't get more than an hour of sleep at a time.
Any advice is GREATLY appreciated!!!
