When the flu hits, it always seems like it comes out of nowhere, and fast.  One day, everyone is feeling fine, and then boom, the flu is here!  John and Kayleigh were both sick last week – vomiting, feverish, lethargic and complaining of body aches, and they both seemed absolutely fine just prior to it hitting.

I’m 35 weeks pregnant right now, and the last thing I want is the flu!  Luckily, we were prepared for the flu, and got the symptoms under control before it got too crazy around here.  Also, I managed to escape getting it myself, so I’m super happy about that!

The last thing you want to have to do when you’re hit with the flu, is run out to the store.  It’s always best to be prepared, and have everything on hand that you might need when the flu strikes. 

Vicks® DayQuil™ and NyQuil™ Severe Cold and Flu

Here are some of the items we keep on hand to help deal with the flu when it hits our home.  You can conveniently find them all at Walmart.  I love that one-stop shopping, don’t you?!  In addition to being able to find everything I want in one store, I know I’m saving a lot of money with Walmart’s low prices.

  • Bottled water – It is so very important to stay hydrated when you have the flu, so we keep plenty of bottled water on hand.
  • Ginger ale – Ginger ale is great for helping to settle an upset tummy!
  • Tea – Tea is also great for settling an upset tummy, and if you’re having chills, it can help to warm you up.
  • Saltine crackers – It can be really hard to keep food down when you have the flu, but it’s important to eat.  Saltine crackers are filling, and very easy on the tummy at the same time.
  • Chicken noodle soup – There is just something magical about chicken noodle soup when you’re sick, isn’t there? 
  • Tissues – When I’m sick with the flu, I go through a TON of tissues.  I make sure I always have plenty on hand.
  • Heating pads – Oh, the aches and pains that come with the flu.  A warm heating pad on my back really helps to melt that pain away!
  • Thermometer – It’s really important to keep an eye on your temperature while you are sick, so having a working thermometer on hand is a must!
  • Vicks® DayQuil™ and NyQuil™ Severe Cold & Flu – When you get sick, you need to have the proper medication on hand to relieve your symptoms and help you feel better fast.
