Any cold remedies for preggos?

So I (sniff) got a bit of a cold (sniff, sniff) and I can't for the life of me remember if it's Tylenol or Ibuprofen that you can take when you have a headache (anyone?) when you're preggers. And I can't dose up on my beloved Nyquil so any suggestions out there for natural, safe remedies?

  1. I think it's Tylenol and Sudafed.

    Boy I went ahead and forgot that in a hurry...

  2. It's Tylenol that's suppose to be safe. I remember that was about the only thing that I could take. I had the worst headaches when I was prego. Those darn hormones. Hope you feel better soon.

  3. Ibuprofen you can't take. Tylenol I don't know what it is. I know paracetamol is ok.

  4. Oh nos! Hope you start feeling better soon. I agree with the above, I've heard that tylenol is ok. I'd say use a humidifier for you to help you sleep and drink lots and lots and then some more. I hear that steamy showers are good for stuffy noses, too.

  5. I concur with ck and bobeesah. Tea works well too. Good luck! I always hated getting sick when I was preggers.

  6. Yup, Tylenol. Green tea is safe and a good rememdy. You can also have Benadryl safely.
