Cold Medicine And Possible Pregnancy Grandpa Viv

Kerri - April 21

I've been sick for over a week and starting to bring up green mucus with a little blood this morning and having alot of green mucus in my sinuses as well. I tried to get an antibiotic last Friday at a walk in clinic but they told me its a virus and to let it run its course. I'm a week late for a/f and suspect pregnancy. I took this one prescribed cough medicine Robitussin A/L only twice (less than a teaspoon) to stop my coughing at night as that is when the coughing is the worst. I've tried to mainly stick to Hot Lemon drinks for relief. I think that its more than a virus and when I went to a walk in clinic last Friday I told them I suspected that I was pregnant as well but was only over a day late and the urine test was negative. I really need some relief for the sickness and not sure now when to retest or test period to see if I am pregnant.

Kerri, if you are worried, you should call the local pharmacy and ask if they know, if they don't call the clinic. When I first started ttc. I developed an alergic reaction and got hives and the only thing that got rid of them was benedryl and when I asked the pharmacist about what the possible problems would be to take the allergy medication, she looks in all of her reference books and didn't see any reason why I couldn't take it. So I did, I wasn't pregnant, but at least she tried her best to help me out!!!

Thanks Chriss, Yes I am a little worried as I have a really hard time getting into my doctor which sometimes takes a week or more just to get an appointment so that's a great idea and I will call them tonight to see what they have to say. I also took the mucus I brought up this morning and put it in a sterile bottle to bring with me so that way when I go to another clinic they will see what it looks like and tell them that I may be pregnant and can go from there. But I agree it would be for sure the fastest way for me to find out. I'm pretty sure though I will need an antibiotic as this bug is really settling in my lungs and sinus. Hope to get some relief soon!! Thanks again for your advice!!

Hi ladies, last month I got what you have Kerri - I went to the doctor but I swore it was a sinus infection and I was waiting on af (TTC for 6 months) when I got to the doctors she examined me - said it was viral but was worried about the mucus I was spitting up (bronchitis); I said I have been ttc and was waiting on af - she said rule of thumb when ttc or think that you are pregnant: 1) Tylenol (plain - no cold, sinus anything like that) 2) Sudafed (again, plain little red pill; no cold, sinus) 3) Robitussin - (again, Plain Robitussin; no DMS; CFS etc...) I hope this helps. I know I went to CVS and bought all three and felt like a million in 2 days (however, the sad part was that af did appear) waiting on April 24th!!

Hi Motherof20, Thanks for your input and as well I'm going back to the walk in clinic tonight as I'm bringing up green mucus with blood so I know that isn't good and now I'm a week and a day late for a/f. I've still only been taking a hot lemon drink before going to bed and I read on the package not to exceed I believe 1-2 packets for pregnant women so other than that I haven't had anything else and have been trying to watch what I'm taking. I've never been this late before so chances are good that I am pregnant but last week tested negative but hopefully after tonight will test positive. The only other thing that I told my hubby is that maybe because of the virus/bug could also be the reason why a/f is delayed but I will hopefully know soon. I hope that you get some good news soon and lots of baby dust to you and I'll let you know what happens!! I'll stop at a Shoppers Drug Mart in Canada to get some Sudafed or Robitussin plain of course! Thanks again!!!
