Lisa is right. The placenta is extremely careful about what it lets through to the baby so rest assured the baby won't even know you have the flu even though you probably feel like death warmed up.
Try just sticking to taking paracetemol if you need to as anything else isn't recommended. Otherwise, see your doc if it gets unbearable.
I hope you feel better soon. Rememeber to REST, REST and more REST

Hiya Hun I also have the flu and feeling very ill I would normally take all the things I can but with be pregnant I can't take them so I have just been drinking lots of orange juice and taking paracamol just before I go to bed to keep my temp down and sleeping lots hope you feel better soon Carrot (sarah) xxxx
