2 out of the 3 kids have had a nasty cough. They are taking antibiotics and cough syrup. I'm coming down with it too... but I want to avoid going to the doctors. What is safe to take during pregnancy? Any home/natural remedies? Thanks!
When I had a cold I was told up to 2000mg of vit c a day was ok (by my midwife) and garlic is a natural antibiotic and is ok in pregnancy...that is what I'd do if I thought it was something that was an infection. You can also up your vit d for a few days to see if that will help fight it off faster. These are all the things I do when I get sick.
Momma to Emma (10), Elzie (8), Gretchen (6), Olive (3), Rogan (1) and Baby #6 due end of April.
