DD2 has been kind enough to share her cold with me and its just making me feel terrible. I am almost 36 weeks and booked in for a caesarian in 10 days so I am looking for suggestions on how to loose this cold ASAP so I can get some rest before the baby arrives.
So suggestions please?

I was going to suggest olive leaf extract but I don't know if it's suitable to take in pregnancy. the only other thing I can think of is keep warm, lots of fluids and lots of rest. But with kids already... fingers crossed you do get a chance to rest!! Best of luck, I hope you're feeling better asap.

water and loads of it, vitamin c, sleep. I have a cold ATM and I am heading to bed as soon as the kids do. Last night it was 7.45! But I am feeling a lot better today. Good luck
