I'm sick

*insert barking cough here*

Pretty much overnight, I've developed a nasty cough, headache, and stuffy nose. No fever, thank God. I know my doc gave me a pamphlet on what's safe to take while pregnant, but damned if I can find it. I've already tried Vick's vaporub, sitting in a steamy bathroom, constant fluids, and plenty of sleep. I don't really feel any better.

So... I'm not sure what to do. Spending the entire day in bed doesn't quite appeal to me, although I'll do it if I have to. I'm just wondering what else I can do.

Phone Motherisk, they have a message you can listen to and it lists the medications that are safe to take for colds/flu/sore throats.

Maybe call your doc in the morning? They might be able to get you an appointment and swab your throat, just in case?

Take care!

I hope you find something that makes you feel better soon.

Being sick sucks, especially if you can't take anything for it.

Oy. I completely comiserate.
I've been sick with the same thing for over 3 weeks now! (It's totally lingering because I haven't taken anything.)
I hope this passes for you soon!

I'm sorry you are sick. I'm sick too. We keep passing it around the family. I emphasize the importance of sharing but this is too much. I actually just got done drinking tea that is supposed to help your liver get rid of toxins. It tastes like pepper but if it can help me get better so be it.

i was down with flu for 1 1/2 weeks. and all i did was rest and drink lots of water including honey. i got well by itself. maybe you want to try that. but, i understand the cough is the nuisance. take care!
