Today I'm feeling a bit under the weather. I woke up with some sinus drainage and a bit of a sore throat. I was feeling a little better by the time we went out to the Wisconsin Farm Technology Show, but by the time I got home I was miserable!!
I seem to be getting worse by the hour. My head is all stuffed up, my throat hurts, I'm sneezing, my eyes are all watery and puffy and my nose is red like Rudolph from all the blowing!
I feel so yucky that I even cancelled my pedicure tonight at one of my favorite places on earth with one of my favorite people! You know I have to be sick to bail on that.
Well, since this is my first time being pregnant and sick at the same time I didn't know what was safe to take so I called Saint Michael's Hospital and spoke to a nurse for a list of cold medicines. She told me I can take Tylenol Cold and Sinus, Robitussin, Tryaminic, cough drops, Vicks and Sudafed. I was told to increase my fluid intake too. She also said that if I develop a fever I should call the doctor right away.
I went through our medicine cabinet and we have none of the meds she listed so my lovely husband ran out to buy me some. He's such a sweetheart. In the meantime I'm lounging on the couch as I blog. I sure hope I feel better tomorrow for the last day of Farm Technology Days.
Did you get stuck with a cold during your pregnancy? What did you take?
