Gross Mucus Buildup

Help I am getting a cold with this awful mucus buildup (TMI) in my nose and throat. This really sucks because my scheduled c-section is Monday. I thought I was free and clear from illness during pregnancy. Lo' and behold I get sick right at my last stance. Is there anything safe to take that will get rid of this horrible feeling? Also, being sick during a section won't cause any problems or make be vulnerable will it?

Re: Gross Mucus Buildup

I've heard that if you are quite sick they will postpone a cesarean. This could be only if you have a really bad cough like broncitis but who knows what their stipulations are!? As for your cold and mucus problem...sorry. I can't think of anything but sleep and hot drinks and soups. Cough drops only increase your saliva and mucas so I highly don't recommend those! I hope you are feeling much better really soon!!! At least by Monday right!

Give your doc a call. I know that Mucinex works great, but I don't know if it is approved for preggers. I'm sure the doctor wants to do the csect on time, so he/she will have something for you to take to get rid of it.
