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.

1 answers
So I'm 26 weeks preggers..and have had a head cold / sinus infection on and off for about 3 months!! HELP! I have done the saline rinses, nasal washes, been on antibiotics ( 3x's) have had a double ear infection from it as well as had it drain into the root of my tooth causing a root canal to go bad....At this point..I just want yo get rid of it! But with all the limitation on you during pregnancy I'm not sure what I can do that is safe to strengthen my immune system to fight this off.. Does anyone know what vitamins other then my prenatals I can take? Dr has me on flonase, and I would really like to get off it as soon as I can...thanks for the help :)

There isn't a whole lot you can do. But, since 70% of your immune system is located in your intestinal tract you should make sure you're eating as healthy as possible. Try eating some yogurt with good bacteria in it.
