EmergenC? Never taken it, but picked some up at grocery store. Is that much Vitamin C ok?

Sleepy Time tea (caffeine free). The one with the bear on it. Wish I had some RRL tea, but my grocery store doesn't carry it.

I've been chugging water too, just wondering if these other things are ok.

Good luck with the emergen-c. hope it works for you. stay hydrated and I hope the cold doesn't hit too hard and is over before baby comes. It would be crappy to have a cold and be birthing.

I took the EmerenC drink...I added about 6 oz of water. It tasted horrible! Is it supposed to be that nasty? I couldn't imagine drinking something that tastes that bad in labor. Eww.

I can't stomach the vit c drink...horid. I would swallow as many garlic cloves as you can...especially before bed as you are less likely to taste them when you are asleep. And Neti pot like crazy to keep your sinuses clear. When I feel something coming on that involves my nose, sinuses and throat...using a neti constantly with sea salt solution can prevent it from getting worse. Also you can do drops of grapefruit seed exrtract in juice several times a day.

I don't like the taste of emergen-C but I do like taking it because it really helps me start feeling better. For me, I chug it!!
You actually get used to the taste after a while, and take it before eating something, to help "rinse" your palate. Good luck, mama, I hope you don't have too bad of a cold.

I am trying to get over a cold and I drank the emergen-c lemon/lime. I could hardly taste it and it was still nasty. It also gave me the worst heartburn and acid reflux. I told dh he better not grab that for me when I am in labor, don't need heartburn and acid reflux to deal with then. I have some strawberry I am going to try hopefully it will taste a little bit better? I have been drinking lots and lots of water and taking a little more Juice Plus, also my midwives green drink gives me a good boost. I hope you feel better soon!
