To do: Got a sore throat when pregnant? Drink lemon, honey, ginger tea

This morning I woke up energized but somehow in a matter of 2-hours all the energy faded to a headache, sore throat, and lethargy. Now, I'm trying to get up the energy to make some dinner - the only problem? I can't swallow.

Not wanting not wanting to take OTC meds for sore throats or hold off all swallowing, I'm going to cure my throat the pregnant/natural way:
1 cup hot water
1 tblsp honey
2 lemons juiced in water
1/4 tsp ground fresh ginger

Look out health - here I come!

I like it best when I cut a few pieces of the ginger and boil it in the water for about 20 minutes (simmer). This makes the ginger water really potent and works miracles!
