You'd have to call your OB/GYN or whichever medical professional is following your pregnancy and ask about your specific symptoms, but in general, if you're getting plenty of rest, EATING, and MAKING SURE YOU STAY HYDRATED, the fetus will be fine.

Also, avoid over the counter medications at all costs - your doctor should be able to tell you names of medications that will not affect your pregnancy, however, most OTC medications are a no-no for pregnant women. Some can cause birth defects. Stick with more natural treatments -- steam for a stuffy head, ginger or mint or Preggie Pops for nausea, and LOTS OF SLEEP for everything else.

Hope you feel better soon.
