    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,
    WebMD Message Boards Management

    Congratulations on your BFP! Welcome to YOUR community!

    this is straight from the approved meds for the first trimester list that i got from my doc:

    for colds/congestion/environmental allergies: Robitussin,tylenol cold, nasal sprays, cepacol, nice, halls, sudafed, benedryl, actifed, chlor-trimeton, allergy shots.

    *I am not a doc or nurse however, so please check with your healthcare provider to confirm these choices for your own pregnancy.

    Thank you for your reply. I did go talk to a pharmacist and they said it was ok to take tylenol. I honestly have felt like I had the whooping cough the past few days. Its starting to get better though and im so happy. I want to be able to breathe again.
