I have had the worst common cold of my life for the last several days.
I am pregnant and I did not realize that when you get sick with something simple like a common chilly during pregnancy, it is way worse, and this is because the body is protecting the fetus so the immune system of the pregnant woman becomes lower.
I have done all of the remedies that are safe to do to try to recognize 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 warm fluids, and resting. It seems that the cold just keeps lingering. I woke up this month feeling better than I have, but still not completely like myself. I legitimately am over being stuck inside the cooling system. I am genuinely grateful to have a cooling system because I feel I would be way more sick if I did not have a cooling system in my house. It is too warm and humid where I live to open the windows and let fresh air in. I legitimately miss breathing in fresh air and I am at the point where I know it would entirely help my congestion. The cooling system has helped me stay cool during my mild fevers and has made it more comfortable to drink warm liquids and eat soup. However, I am ready to recognize fresh air and get out of the cooling system for a while.
