    Oh my God this is perfect. I had that 24 hour bug the other day but now I have a hacking chest/deep cough. My MIL is a L&D nurse and she said robitussin but make sure it's not the DM kind.

  • My midwife and a pharmacist (because I wanted to be sure I was remembering correctly) both said that Allegra is also okay for allergies.

    Thanks for posting @NYTino24. This is a good list. The one thing I'd recommend for Vitamin D is reading your labels if you take multiple supplements, as Vitamin D is added to a lot of things. Vitamin D is in my prenatal, my DHA supplement, and my calcium supplement. I still take a separate Vitamin D supplement, but I'm taking a lower dose of that to stay at 4,000 IU.

  • @slaven I posted it for you! Hope you feel better soon!

    @NYTino24 Thanks! I feel like a whiney baby. But whats hard is that my Korean OB doesn't necessarily know about American OTCs and I'm hesitant to take Korean medicine. I haven't really seen OTCs here, it's like for even little colds Koreans go to the dr. and they get a RX. Even if it's just some kind of herbal thing. We have a pharmacy on base but it's closed on weekends so I can't call them and ask what to take. Thankfully DH has to go to work in a bit so I'll be driving him in and getting robitussin and vicks.

    Thanks for the link on the vitamin D. I was supplimenting daily and actually cut back when I found out I was pregnant and started a prenatal- since the prenatal had 400IUs. Going to grab my pill trays and add my vit D supplimental back in.

  • @NYTino24 Thanks! Thinking I need to add a vitamin D supplement to my prenatal, another question for the ob at my first visit!

  •  I had been taking 5,000 iui of Vitamin D daily, and then the nurse said I should only have 1,000 max. I asked her why and she said she didn't know (??) and then said there weren't enough studies. But studies do say at least 4,000 iui a day, I suppose!

  • Anyone have any suggestions for chest and head congestion??!! I went from a mild runny nose yesterday to coughing phlegm and so congested I can't breathe....ugh
  • @ChattyKitty17 The three things circled above should work.

    @ChattyKitty17 No problem! My doc circled them for me when I had a bad sinus infection last pregnancy. Make sure you get the regular ones - nothing like Mucinex FastMax or anything like that because it has phenylepherine. Hope you feel better.

    @DuchessOfCambridge That sheet lists it as something to avoid twice. Here is more info:

  • @NYTino24 I see Metamucil is listed twice. Perhaps because it's a life changing miracle supplement, especially for my IBS! 
  • @bklynchica If you say it's a miracle, then I may need to try it. Getting desperate fast!

  • @NYTino24 Truly amazing. I take the capsules because I read the powder mixed with water is gross. The instructions say you can take up to 20 a day. That's a little crazy. I take 3 a day every morning. Just have to be careful to leave two hours between Metamucil and any other medication as it can affect the absorption, so I do folic acid at night.

    For non-medication congestion relief, I love my neti pot. It's pretty weird at first and takes a minute to get used to, but it's a game-changer for me. I've had rhinitis of pregnancy since about week 5 and it's helped me so much. My congestion is all in my nasal sinuses so the flush gets rid of it completely. 

    Yes, I would love to stalk your chart!

  • This is what I got from my OB office.  @NYTino24 I'm surprised they have Pepto-Bismol on your list.

  • @mispanda I've seen some things about it not being safe, too. I always triple check if I want to take something - online, OB, and pharmacist.
