I am about 6 weeks pregnant and have i am sick. i think its the flu. my trough is killing me, my body aches, my nose is runny. today is the fourth day. i feel a tinny bit better but i have to go back to work tomorrow so im scared im going to start feeling worse again. I am ok with feeling this way, but im scared for the baby. this is my second one and i got sick like this around the same time with my first pregnancy, my baby is fine and the flu did not effect me. i just cant help being worried about being so sick and being pregnant. all i am taking right now is tylenol. any tips or recommendations would help. Thanks.

I didn't know you could take Tylenol. I've been miserable since Friday
Right now, I'd rather have morning sickness
