At the gym the other day I noticed a woman had brought in a child with a nose running like a faucet to the day care. I thought to myself, "Grrreeaaatt." Then, I noticed another little boy hacking up a lung and sounding awful. I knew we were in for it. Ean caught it first, then I did, and finally my oldest. We all have been suffering through a nasty cold for the last 5 days. Anyone else had their first cold this season? How did it go with pregnancy? My worst symptom was apparently that it brought back the exhaustion of the first trimester while my body was struggling to fight it off.

I'm on the tail end of my first one that my son so lovingly shared with me that he caught from a friend from school. I had just gotten my flu shot a few days prior to catching it, so I wasn't sure if it was side effects or a cold. When it didn't go away and it was mostly sniffles and sneezes, I knew. I've had it for about a week or so now. Glad to be starting to feel normal again.

My baby was sick last week but the rest of us managed to avoid it. I started giving my kids extra vitamin D this fall and it seemed to help fight off illnesses.

I've been taking a Vitamin D supplement myself and that seems to be warding off anything awful. This cold has been more annoying than anything. Usually if I get a cold, it knocks me out for days. My son is usually pretty healthy, but he does catch some things now and again.

Yup! I've got it right now! My usual go to's for a cold to help with it I can't take... Now I'm suffering! My DH says it's from the Flu Shot (he REFUSES to get it and is mad at me for making myself & my 3 kids get ours). It's been over a month ago when I got mine. This is the plain ole cold.

I get colds every year, in 2009 I got pneumonia and spent a week in the hospital. That year I didn't get the flu shot. I seem to only get the flu shot when pregnant and when I have a under 1yr old baby at home..
