Putting off doctor bc i thought they cant do anything other than tell me i can only take tylenol. I want to protect my baby in everyway possible but i need a little relief it has knocked me down to the couch now the bed. Thank you again

  • R we able to use over the counter nausea meds. The doctor gave me different kinds and nutting is working and I keep forgetting to ask her if I can take over the counter meds. I’ve lost 16 pounds in 5 days and I’m 9 weeks pregnant help me plz…

  • At 8 weeks pregnant, what can my body handle for extreme head cold. I know it’s still really early and being my first pregnancy I’m very concerned

  • Oxymetazoline (Afrin) nasal spray is safe in pregnancy but I do not recommend its use for anyone. It is very easy to become dependant on it and it can cause rebound symptoms, that is as soon as you stop it the symptoms become worse than before starting it. If you have a dependance already, the est thing to do is to stop the nasal spray and live with the discomfort for a few days. After a few days things will return to normal. Sudafed or oral antihistamines are better alternatives.
