I have had the worst cold of my life for the last multiple days.
I am pregnant and I did not realize that when you get sick with something easy like a common cold while we were in pregnancy, it is way worse, then 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 feel better. I have slept with a mini humidifier next to our 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 today feeling better than I have, but still not completely like myself. I easily am over being stuck inside the air conditioning. I am certainly grateful to have air conditioning because I think I would be way more sick if I did not have air conditioning in our house. However, it is too warm and humid where I live to open the windows and let fresh air in. I easily miss breathing in fresh air and I am at the point where I think it would certainly help our congestion. The air conditioning has helped me stay cool during my mild fevers and has made it more comfortable to drink hot liquids plus eat soup. However, I am ready to feel fresh air and get out of the air conditioning for a while.
