Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

I'm no doctor but drinking plenty of orange juice helped me when I had the cold.  Also, drink plety of water.
Get in to see you doctor.  Swine Flu isn't gone for good, and you're immune system is weakened when you're pregnant, making you even more prone to contracting it.  If the doctor determines you do have it, they need to treat it right away with Tamiflu. In the meantime, get plenty of rest and stay hydrated with Gatorade.  Soups work wonders, even though it's wrming up outside.  My doctor says ANY Tylenol over the counter products are fine, but NO ibuprofen.
