Pregnancy will cause your immunity to drop. So do try to avoid being in the company of people who are not feeling well and be extra careful of the food you are eating. Try to take Vitamin C, drink more water and fruits too.

I will try non-medicine methods. If it doesn’t work, see doctor to get pregnancy safe medicine. I don’t self medicate Nor wait too Long. Don’t want those germs in my body to affect my baby either

I was sick in early pregnancy, around week 4. Did not take medicine and slowly recover with more rest and water. Since then, i have been drinking a lot of water and eating more veg and fruits.

Hey, Yes it is normal during early stages of pregnancy. Have of water and include fruits and juices in your diet and rest well

Yes, some mummies to be do fall sick easily. Go to the clinic for consultation and take medications prescribed by the doctor

Yes! But I still take medicine. But if you can endure the pain and illness, you may just take honey to ease it

I think immune system is weak during pregnancy. Paracetamol is safe and honey lemon juice works for my cough.
