Cold remedies--ignore, double posted by mistake

I'm 5 weeks 4 days pregnant and I'm getting a cold. I typically would take the chewable vitamin C pills and that would help shorten the length and intensity but the bottle says not to use while pregnant. There's only so many spoons of honey I can swallow or cough drops to suck on. Any medicines that are safe for pregnant women I can take? I'm being cautious because I had some heavy bleeding last weekend and now I'm on progesterone, baby aspirin, and ligh dose folic acid. I want to make sure I don't really tempt fate.

  • I've been dying of a cold all week :/ there's really not a whole lot you can do. honey definitely works. I've been drinking lots of mint tea, steamin up the bathroom & sitting in it for a while, using Vics.. regular strength tylenol is okay to take. I've also been told Halls is okay as well, so I've been sticking to those.

    hope you feel better! Merry Christmas!
