During pregnancy, there are so many no-no’s, you have to be very cautious of your actions — what to drink, eat, any intake. This makes me so afraid to take any medicines, even apply any sort of lotions. But at times when you can no longer sleep at night because of backache, when you have to leave early from work because of a headache or take time off because of a fever, you just have to do something.

I’ve undergone surgery during this pregnancy, and my best friend? Biogesic. This seems to be the only prescribed medicine safe for pregnancy to ease any pain — from my incision, to headache, from back pains to fever. For colds, runny nose and cough, I take 500mg of Vitamin C, lots of fruits rich in Vit C like oranges, and calamansi juice. For sore throat, Diflam lozenges are prescribed

Although these are safe, I wish this is the last of it. I don’t want to take any more meds as I feel my baby has gone through a lot already.
