Ewwy, that really sucks! Keep taking your prenatal vitamins and you could try gurgling warm/semi-hot iodized salt water. Peppermint also helped my sore throat and cough when I was sick and pregnant. The only thing about that is it only helps while the peppermint is in your mouth, so you constantly have to keep sucking on one to help relieve the pain. When I was sick I fell asleep with a peppermint in my mouth and woke up with DH when his alarm went off and the peppermint was still tucked away in my cheek. DH pretty much flipped out on me telling me I could have chocked. I didn't mean to, but yea peppermint helps, just don't fall asleep with it in your mouth!!
Warm caffeine free tea helps too, but not as much as the peppermint did. I hope you start feeling better soon ((hugs)) being sick while pregnant is pretty miserable.
Oh no that stinks. I would definitely talk to your dr before taking any medication. A nice hot bath and lots of sleep always work for me but being sick for over a week is terrible. I know when I'm pregnant and I get sick it's alot worse than when I'm not pregnant.
I agree with Amy gurgling warm salt water may help your throat. I hope you feel better soon.
Thank you *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy
I've read that honey is just as good as cough syrup in tests. When my sis and I were kids, my mom used to make warm honey water for us to drink for sore throats. A little lemon in there might help too.
