I have my first appointment tomorrow, I will ask then. Just trying to ease this cough a little, but I can't remember what cough drops are safe.. if any. I will try the warm salt water gargle... thats gotta help a littl.e
I was just about to post this same thing. I am soo freaking sick. I'm going to the dr today at 5 because my chest is killing me and I'm freaked it might be pnemonia (sp?) or something. I'll ask the dr what, if anything we can do to help make us feel better. Definately no fun at all!!!!
ETA: safefetus.com is an awesome website that lists tons of meds and what category they are in (A,B,C etc) I always check there first.

So the Dr said that she would not recommend taking anything in the first tri unless absolutely necessary. She also said any cough drops with menthyl (halls, vicks etc.) are safe but ricola is a no no. Hope that helps. It sucks being so sick!
