I started feeling the cold symptoms about a week ago. So far this pregnancy I have successfully avoided all flus, colds, viruses, allergies and any and all other diseases. Except now that I am in the home stretch my body has decided it’s done. No more warding off sickness.
This cold is taking on a life of it’s own. It started with just a sore throat. Then it moved on to runny nose. Now its sore throat, runny nose, congestion, headache and stuffy ears. Normally I would be drinking Nyquil and Dayquil like my life depended on it. Oh wait, I’m pregnant. I can’t take ANYTHING.
I have Googled and asked around, and really, there is nothing you can take when you are pregnant and have a cold. I tried benedryl, and the severity of this cold even prevented me from experiencing the benedryl coma. Tylonal has done nothing for the head aches.
Noah doesn’t seem to understand that I need to stay in bed all day. I feel like he should really just make his own meals. Luckily, his cold from a couple weeks ago has seemed to make him immune to mine.
Since Baby #2 and I have already agreed she needs to make her appearance into the world early, I don’t have much time to get over this thing. Any ideas on how to make a cold go away med free?
