If it makes you feel any better, i can’t even take dayquil and I’m not pregnant. I am so sensitive to decongestants they put me to sleep no matter the formula! I hope you feel better soon!

I hear you.  I have been sick with a head/throat cold for 8 days.  8 DAYS!!! The only thing my doc wants me to take is regular strength Tylenol.  I didn’t know it was possible to miss Nyquil so much.

 

Get a humidifier if you don’t have one.  Really helps at night!

I have a cold right now too.  I called the doctor and they said I could take regular Sudafed and plan Robitussin, so I’ve been taking half a dose of the Sudafed and everything seems ok.  I’m actually starting to feel better.  Make sure you drink lots of water and use saline nasal spray 100000000 times a day!  Hope you feel better soon!

My doctor also said that plain tylenol cold was ok.

I went to the doc and she gave me antibiotoics.  11 days and still sick!!!  Ugh.  If I wasn’t pregnant I’m pretty sure they would have told me to just wait it out!

@PrncssDva:  Toss that in some tea (a kind that’s okay for preggers to drink)! 

I’m not pregnant, but I have a head cold that was a birthday gift from my Fiance lol. At least my throat doesn’t hurt anymore, but this whole being stuffy thing sucks.

@PrncssDva:  Ugh, that is exactly that I have. Get those nose stripes (Breathe Right?) and wear those at night, run a humidifier, etc. I don’t like medicine, so I try to avoid it when I can.
