I have had the worst cold of my life for the last six days.
- I am pregnant and I did not realize that when you get sick with something like a usual cold while in pregnancy, it is way worse.
This is because the body is protecting the fetus so the immune system of the pregnant lady becomes lower. I have done all of the remedies that are safe to do to try to feel better. I have slept with a mini humidifier next to my bed every night. I have been taking the humidifier with me when I lay on the couch. I have been taking the only approved medications that I can take, drinking lots of water, drinking hot fluids, and resting. It seems that the cold just keeps lingering. I woke up today feeling better than I have. But I am still not completely like myself. I legitimately am over being stuck inside the air conditioning. I am undoubtedly grateful to have air conditioning because I think I would be way more sick if I did not have air conditioning in our house, but it is too hot and humid where I live to open the windows and let fresh air in. I miss breathing in fresh air and I am at the point where I think it would honestly help my congestion. The air conditioning has helped me stay cool while in my mild fevers and has made it more comfortable to drink hot liquids and eat hot soup. However, I am ready to feel fresh air and get out of the air conditioning for a while.
