I have had the worst cold of my life for the last numerous days, I am pregnant and I did not realize that when you get sick with something with something like a cold during pregnancy, it is way worse, but 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 evening. 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 sizzling 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 certainly am over being stuck inside the air conditioning. I am actually grateful to have air conditioning because I think I would be way more sick if I did not have an air conditioner in my house. However, it is too hot and humid where I live to open the windows and let fresh air in. I certainly miss breathing in fresh air and I am at the point where I think it would actually help my congestion. The air conditioning has helped me stay cool during 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.
