  • Hello,

    I have the same problem. I had a cold at the beginning of last week and it's cleared up except for this chesty cough and sore throat which is making me feel very worn out. I stopped at the pharmacy this afternoon but the pharmacist said there isn't really anything I can take while pregnant, unless I have a prescription from the doctor. She suggested steam inhalation and apparently Vicks is okay, but other than that I think we're just supposed to grin and bear it. Hopefully it will clear up soon.

    Hope this helps. :\)
  • Thanks for your replies ladies, we went and got some honey and Lemon and Vicks Vaporub. Are you able to put a bit on your chest aswell as inhaling it in hot water??? Im petrified of doing something to harm my baby.
