What a week!

First I vomitted until I peed in my pants.

Out comes the calendar.....strike off all evening appointments.

Imagine going to a wedding dinner in a 5 star hotel and making an exit with a wet evening gown. nonononono......

Then 2 days later I vomitted until I got a sorethroat.

Out comes the calendar.....strike off all other appointments.

The next day, I got a flu.

And the next, I got a fever.

Now.....I am working from home trying to make it through another weak week.

When it rains, it POURS.

***
I had a point to this post.....wanted to know anyone took Paracetamol during their pregnancies previously?

ju ann, better dont take any medicine before consulting the doc.. the first three months of pregnancy is very sensitive.. i had a flu too during my 3rd month, i was in gentings then, the GP there prescribed me some medicine and i called my gynae in IPOH to confirm whether i can take those pills or not.. with green light, i took them.. hahaa.. kiasi..

I remember I took loads of medication for flu just right before I found out I was pregnant. After that I felt so guilty and worried. Better check with the doctor.

I remember vomitting till the food shot right out of my nostrils. Ewe. And the morning sickness would last all day and night, I wonder why they call it morning sickness.

You take good care yah. Check with the doctor and rest whenever possible. Try to take plain cracker biscuits if you can't keep down your food so that your stomach would not feel empty.

I didnt go through a rough first trimester, so I cant offer any advise. See the doc. Or maybe some chinese herbs instead?

coffeesncookies said...

I did take panadols coz i had such bad migraine from vomitting but doc limit me to 6 per day. You'll need to check with yr doc if she/he allows paracetamol for you.
Stay away from chinese herbs tho'

Not to take any off the shelf medicine without any consultation from the doc/gynae. Take care.

Oh, you poor thing. Yup, I cancelled everything when I was sick. It's just not worth the risk....too much hassle.

Paracetamol is fine as long as you're not allergic to it but no more than a certain amount a day. And really, you should only take it when you really, really need to.
