Cold with pregnancy: You probably have the common cold which is a virus. You can take Tylenol (acetaminophen) and plenty of fluids. As always check with your OB/gyn before you take anything. If you start having yellow drainage or colored drainage you can call the obgyn for an antibiotic. Try to pop the ears by holding the nose, closing the lips and forcing air into the nose. This is called a valsalva. Do this 30 or so times
