Hi Nikki, I am 6wks. and I found out at 4 wks. When I found out I had a nasty little cold, My mother in law said her head got all stuffed up with both of her kids and stayed that way for all 9 mo. Anyway my cold is gone now but I did ask my dr. and he said its ok to take sudafed(4hr, not the 12hr.) or Tylenol-regular strength if you absolutely HAVE to take something those 2 things are the only you can take-thats what my doc said. Good Luck!

If you aren't supposed to get your period until the 30th or later, than if your egg was fertilized, it wouldn't have implanted yet, and you shouldn't be getting pregnancy symptoms yet. It takes a fertilized egg 6 - 12 days to implant in the uterus and then it takes 3 - 4 days to build up enough hormone to be detected by a home pregnancy test. It is the hormone that causes you to have symptoms. If the egg hasn't implanted yet, the drugs won't harm it. If you are ttc, then you should stop taking all drugs and medications as most are harmful to the baby. You can visit the site for information on all drugs during pregnancy.
