Does anyone know any kind of medicine I can take while pregnant?

I keep getting sick and I just don't know what to do. This pregnancy has been hard. I see my doctor on Friday but I feel a mess.

    It depends on your symptoms. I'm not a fan of medications during pregnancy but try some tea w/ lemon and honey. Also if you didn't get the flu shot yet you should get it ASAP.

    Hope you feel better.

      You are on week 9 so it may be morning sickness kicking in. I had really bad morning sickness all day long every day for the first four months of my first pregnancy. One thing that helps is to try drinking ice water. I usually got the crushed ice at the gas station but cubes from the tray in your freezer would work also. I would fill my cup to the top with ice then put water in. Also try to relax and take naps. Even if it is just dozing during your lunch at work.

      If you can figure out what triggers that sick reaction try to avoid whatever the trigger is if there is something that triggers it more than anything else. I know with my first I couldn't walk near the meat at the store without getting sick. Even at Wal-Mart where everything is prepackaged.

            Sounds like a cold. Call your dr and ask what you can take. Different doctors will recommend different things. Mainly try to relax and drink plenty of warm liquids.

                My parents always had me wrap up in as many blankets as possible and drink hot tea with a bit of honey and lemon in it and stay wrapped up and sweat it out when I had a cold as a child. I didn't like taking medicine much for anything other than pain and still don't. Vicks rub on the chest helps also if you are stuffy or your nose is just raw you can put it on your nose.

                      I'd say yes to sweating it out to cool down your body temp and help with the fever. Talk to your dr. before you take anything otc.

                          When I would get sick like that, pregnant or not, I would use rubbing alcohol on my arms and legs then wrap myself in blankets. It would help.

                                      My sister said the cold could be from the side effect of the flu shot.
