I rarely call the doctor anymore. It is only after I've tried managing it at home, with no success, or serious problems.For the most part with my 6 year old, I let the symptoms run the course, only giving Motrin/Tylenol/Ibuprofen only when they need comfort from a fever.


So as many of you know I'm just about to head into 6 weeks and yes, I feel like I'm coming down with the beginnings of an ear infection and feel a little crappy.

I've been taking more Vitamin C of course, fluids, etc.

I'm aware of only tylenol and nothing more really. I'm just nervous of the effects any medication might have on the development of the fetus.
