I had the flu in dec the weekend before Christmas, then yesterday morning I got up with a sore throat and a horrible cough and a hard time breathing... I got a really hot shower and that seemed to loosen things up and I could breath better. Now today I still have the bad cough plus NO voice! The last time I had bronchitis (which I'm certain thats what this is) it turned in to pneumonia mainly b/c the dr misses it and I just kept getting worse. I'm afraid to go to the dr b/c they can't really give me anything anyways b/c it's viral,and I don't want to take anything... So it's dumb to spend all that time there. Just can't catch a break!

Anyone know of any natural remedies?

sorry to hear you are feeling poorly, and hope you feel better soon. Have you tried hot lemon, honey and ginger as a drink? Chicken soup also really helps - I know it sounds kooky, but it has actually been medically proven to help colds. You could also try a steam bath with Vicks or eucolyptus oil? add a few drops to boiling water in a shallow pan, and put your head over the top, covered with a towel (does this read right?!!!!) the steam will loosen any congestion.

If you really don't feel better, just go to the doctors, they should be able to prescribe you something that won't be detrimental to the baby - perhaps some homepathic medicine?

Best of luck, and get well soon x

I've been in bed all week!! I FINALLY got a good night sleep last night. I had been wandering around in a daze the previous 4 nights. Fever, headache, cough, dizzy, you name it. It was horrible. Still coughing up phlem and so are my little girls. I wouldn't wish this on anyone. Tea with honey and lemon and chicken soup were lifesavers. I didn't have any decaf though so I wished I could drink more of it. Get Well Soon!!!

I'm sorry you're not feeling well either no fun for sure!

I tried peppermint extract in boiling water and loved the smell but not sure it helped, and I don't have the other things on hand, I'm going to have to hit the drug store tomorrow b/c this is ridicules lol, I don't even have a squeak left to my voice , I pulled chicken broth from the freezer for tomorrow for chicken noodle soup, hopefully it helps :0)
