Is mucinex okay to take when you're pregnant??? I've heard that there is "nothing" safe during pregnancy and thus why so many of us suffer through being sick... benadryl and tylenol is what i've heard is okay.

Try sinus rinse or a netti pot! My dr told me sudafed...but I never took it.

I am sorry you are sick again! I know the one time I was sick I was miserable...it is so hard to go without meds!! I am not sure if you are stuffy or not, but I was getting stuffy and used the neti pot and it made it go away. You could try that. And HaPpY EaRlY BiRtHdAy!!! Isn't it exciting to know that on your next b-day you will be able to celebrate with Morgan..YAY!!!

Happy Early Birthday!!
Check with your OB before taking Mucinex. I heard you couldn't take it. My Dr. allows Tylenol Cold or Sudafed but honestly, the best thing I've learned is Vitamin C. Lots of it! Sorry you aren't feeling well :(
