Since testing +'ve on 28 July I have developed a heavy dose of the flu. I am really worried that all the germs will have ruined my chances of my pregnancy continuing. Any advice to put my mind at rest please?
I remember having tonsillitis really badly when I was pregnant 5 years ago and everything was fine. Try not to worry and just take some extra vitamin C and whatever your doc recommends! take care and hang in there!
Thank Debbie for the reassurance. You know what it is like, you can't stop worrying about every little thing. Am drinking lots of fluids, trying to wash all the bugs out of my system and away from my precious embey.
I am sure your embie can cope with the flu - your body will go into protection mode, however I suggest bed rest, lots of fluids, vitamin C and zinc to get you back on your feet. If more than a few days see your GP.
Hope you feel better soon - rotten luck to get flu in this weather!
Yep, I agree with the others. Bubbs will be fine Maybe just take a couple of paracetamol if you get a temperature. Paracetamol is absolutely fine to take whilst pg as it doesn't cross the placenta at all.
