? about the meds I took when I had the flu

I am really getting myself all worried. I had a terrible flu for about 8 days. I am worried that over the course of time I had the flu I was taking OTC meds to help in any way possible. While I only stuck to the safe meds like tylenol sinus, regular tylenol, cough drops (as needed) and robitussun I worry that because I was sick for 8 days and took the meds everyday at least 4 or 5 doses a day. I( I was so miserable some days I was counting down when the 4 to 6 hours was up so I could take another dose) now Im worried this has harmed the baby. Any reassurance anyone can give that what I did was ok. I followed labels and did not take more then what was allowed but I took the max of what was allowed, not denying that. It was just awful. A couple of days there death sound like a wonderful option. Now I am on antibiotic for a sinus infection it left me with and of course im worried about this too! Sooooo sick of always worrying about something.

Same thing happened to me at 15 weeks. For 2 weeks I was on Tylenol Flu, cough drops and Amoxicillian. Dont worry. Everything is good here, I am now almost 24 weeks. Its better to take care of yourself for the babies sake than to let it go. If you need reassurance Im sure that your doc can give you plenty. It'll be ok. Hope you feel better.
