Suffering is the Mother of Sympathy?



When I was pregnant with Wendy, I had the great fortune of not experiencing a cold.

Not so, this time. I'm ten weeks pregnant, and I have a cold. Sore throat, incredible sinus pressure, and unbelievable mucus production. Yuck.

And so, from now on, I will be MUCH more sympathetic when a pregnant friend gets a cold. Because trying to limp through on Tylenol & Sudafed? It's not much fun.

You should probably call your doctor to see if there is something else you can take. That is what I had to do. It really helped a lot!

Have you tried the shower tablets. I can't think what they are called now, but you can get them in different smells. Vick's may be the brand. Anyway, you put them in the bottom of the shower and they smell it up. That helped some when I had a cold when I was pregnant. I would take a shower in the morning and evening with one of those and they helped open me up some. You might give it a try.

Hope you feel better soon. I know it is no fun to feel poorly and not be able to medicate.
