I told you I came here to complain<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
Started last night with sore throat, then stuffy nose - has now progressed to a really stiff neck and overall body soreness. If I thought I was tired before - that was nothing.<br><br>
So - I'm trying to take Vit C, and I usually take Echinacea tincture in tea with Capsicum....but I can't even stomach the thought of drinking a cup of tea right now, and the tincture on its own sounds fairly revolting too.<br><br>
What is preg safe and will help me feel better? I've still got to shop for DH.<br><br>
Boohoo Hooo. Poor me<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>

Ugh, I know exactly what you are going through! Same thing happened to me at 7 weeks pregnant. It lasted for two weeks and I did not feel comforatble taking anything. It was horrible. After one full week of being sick I visited the Dr to be sure I did not have an infection and she prescribed me Zyrtec. I brought home samples but never took them. Researched it a little and decided I would tough it out. Teas with honey helped a little. I did not find much relief in anything though.<br><br>
I feel for you!

Ifeel your pain mama, at about 10 weeks i had horrible stomach flu. IT is so scary and miserable to be pregnant and sick...especially with a sick toddler to tend.

echinacea, miso soup with shitake mushrooms, elderberry, I think we're actually supposed to be careful with overdosing on vit c. Not sure why. Normally I just drink that Emergen - C stuff all day when I feel it coming on. I think you could also take that homeopathic flu stuff, but you might want to double check with a homeopathic pharmacy first. I've been unable to take my elderberry (Sambucol) or echinacea, though. Gives me the shivers! Drink extra water! (am i the only one having trouble drinking water now? I'm drinking waaay less than usual and am feeling it, but I just CAN'T!).<br><br>
Hope you feel better soon...

The best remedy I've have ever found is lots of sleep. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> Hope you feel better soon.
