Cold/Flu at 33 weeks Rss

Hi all,
I had the flu vaccine when I was 6 weeks pregnant however somehow my body has decided to catch something viral. I was wondering if any of you had a cold/flu what you did to sooth symptoms? And when to contact the midwife as apparently it can cause early labour? I have gestational diabetes so presume anything meant to sooth my throat (throat lozenges) will cause hyperglycemia. I have lemon ginger tea which I assume would be fine without honey of course and paracetamol.

Yep pretty much paracetamol is all you can take. Could try hovering over a bowl of steamy water if you are congested. Don't think a common cold would trigger labour so I'd say just rest up if you can and keep your fluids up.

Feel better soon!
