I'm sick :o( I have a low-grade fever, thumping headache, sore throat and aching muscles. I've been feeling progressively worse since Friday. Please please PLEASE don't let this be the start of flu. I don't know how I will manage with Michael if I have flu. He was a bit of a nightmare yesterday and basically chewed his fists and howled from sunrise to sunset. I've given up wondering when this next tooth will appear. By the time we went to bed last night I was having to do things for him in near darkness because the light hurt my eyes. The real problem is that I am severely limited in the medication I can take because I am breastfeeding. I think I am limited to paracetamol. Please let me feel better soon!!

Last week Yasmin had a fever and two days later Maya caught it. Luckily it only lasted one day, but she's still coughing, which is making her a bit grumpy.

I had a bad cough ones some years ago that didn't go away. The pills I got from the doctor didn't work. But then I remembered Strepsils and Stophoest, and honey, and those really helped. My point is: don't forget the home-remedies! Maybe some chicken soup ;)

Get well soon!

Very good advice! Since I had no medication at all when I was pregnant, I have taken home remedies very seriously. Tea with honey in it, a steaming bowl of water and hard-boiled sweets really help. I also have an eye mask that is filled with gel and goes in the fridge. I'd take your advice on the chicken soup but I can't stand the stuff!
