I feel miserable! I have been sick for over a week and I thought I was getting better but now I feel worse than ever! And it's the middle of the night and I can't sleep. Is it bad to take Nyquil?

Yeah, I wouldn't do the Nyquil thing, personally.<br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug">

I don't know where you live and if it is an allergy thing or cold thing but my MW suggested taking Claritin if I was really miserable stuffy. She said it is safe in pg (whereas sudafed and the like are debateable) and works better than sudafed anyway. Also try a humidifier at night and saline spray in your nose to clear things up. When I first feel things coming on I do the Vit C, zinc, echinacea in hopes of keeping it off though.

Thanks for the sympathy! I didn't take the Nyquil. And I didn't get much sleep either. Oh well.

I can relate. I was sick for a month during the first trimester. Tylenol is safe and does help some people sleep. Try a cup of warm milk or hot chocolate made with milk. When you warm it it releases trytophan like in turkey.<br><br>
Get better soon!
