I was sick last week with a cold, sore throat, etc....well, I got over it within a few days, and now my husband has the flu, passed it to me. I don't have the flu but I'm right back where I started. The thing is, is that I might be scheduled for a c-section this Friday and need to get better. I don't want to postpone this at all. I will be 40 weeks this Friday and really want my little guy out. Any suggestions on what I can take to feel better fast?? I feel so miserable right now.

I don't know if this works as I have not tried it, but since you sound desperate I thought I would pa__s it on. My doula told this to me and SWEARS by it. It sounds gross but since you really want to be better: She said to crush garlic gloves in a small bowl and to pour honey all over it. Let it sit out overnight and start eating it the next day throughout the day. She says that everytime she has tried this remedy (pregnant or not), she was totally better within 48 hours. Might be hokey but might as well try.

I don't know if this is an option for you or not, but try LOTS of sleep. The production of white blood cells that fight illness happens mainly while you're sleeping. And I guess you probably already know this but - drink plenty of clear fluids, and eat chicken soup.
