My throat is dry and sore and I could definately go for a hot cup of Traditional Medicinals Throat Coat right about now. Since it's off limits during pregnancy, what do you drink to soothe a sore throat?

Licorice Root - It can elevate blood pressure. I know that even in a perfectly healthy or non pregnant woman it is recommended that licorice root not be ingested on a daily basis for more than 7 days because of this.

When I had a nasty, NASTY cold I took the boiron Chestal homeopathic cough syrup. Its in a honey base, and homeopathic so its perfectly safe. It works well for me. I also would drink pregnancy or RRL tea with honey in it, simply because ANY hot tea is soothing to me when I'm sick.
