I can't get anyone to answer the phone at my OB's office. I guess they're busy. I have some kind of nasty flu or cold. Idk, but I'm coughing my damn head off. Which wouldn't be such a big deal except I'm pregnant and it makes me vomit. I puke every time I cough. I'm trying to drink a lot of water to stay hydrated but I can't keep anything down because I can't quit coughing. Cough drops are not cutting it. Is there any kind of cough syrup or cold meds I can take? I don't remember what my OB said I could take with LO because it's been almost 3 years ago since the last time I was pregnant and sick and I can't get him on the phone to ask. I've been calling for an hour. Help?
I was told that Robitussin DM was safe to take while pregnant. Just make sure that you stay hydrated and make to keep some kind of nutrition down you. My OB told me to go to either urgent care, a family physician, or the ER in order to get checked out. Just remember, healthy momma equals healthy baby :-) Good luck and I hope you feel better!
