Safe Cold remedies?

Hello, looking for advice on what is safe to take when you are pregnant and have a cold. Just got my BFP yesterday, still in shock. Meanwhile I came down with horrid cold, I have taken paracetamol this morn but wondering if there is anything else that helps? Read that Lemsip is out, as has decongestant that in unsafe to take.

Thanks in advance.

Paracetamol only I'm afraid. Try hot lemon and honey to drink and ensure you are taking some additional vitamin C to boost your immune system. xx

Make your own lemon tea with lemon, honey and fresh ginger x


Oooh I was told ginger is fine when trying but avoid once pregnant. Love fresh ginger and lemon x


I'm currently 32 weeks pregnant after icsi and had a bad cold the other week , I had fresh lemon , fresh grated ginger and manuka honey in boiling water and just sip.

It worked a treat x
