I feel so bad for my poor baby inside cuz he probley feels like a earthquake is going on! Anyways the dr said to take tylenol cold which don't help! I am 7 and 1/2 months along and this is the last thing I want to deal with! Does anyone have any suggestions to help with this or know of anything I can take??? Thanks!!

I'd suggest a diagnosis. Have you gone to the doctor's office or just phoned in? It's possible that you have a respiratory infection and not a cold. Bronchitis or pneumonia is a serious issue in colder weather...so get checked out! And start taking immune system enhancers like echinacea, garlic supplements, and an all-over immune supplement (Combined herbs are better than stand alones).

Hey thanks to everyone who replied! So I decided I needed to go see my family doctor instead of dealing with my OB. I went in to the drs and I was a direct admit to the hospital for pneumonia! They gave me an iv with antibiotics and breathing treatments and a whole ton of tests. I got admitted wednesday and got out today. I still have to be on antibiotics for 3 more days but they are oral ones and I have in inhaler but I can breath!!!!! I am thankful I decided to see my family doctor because the OB just didn't seem like it was a big deal on Monday and brushed me off which really scares me. But I guess thank God I got treated and I am in rotation with all the OBs in the office starting next appt incase mine won't be there to deliver so hopefully I don't have to deal with him again!

YEAH
So very thankful you and the baby are ok. Glad you are on rotation as well, I'd most certainly NOT want to rely on someone who "brushed me off with pneumonia" to deliver this baby.........Please just take good care of yourself and keep in touch! So glad you are feeling better! FGM
