So two weeks ago I was down with a head cold for 7 days. Last Wed I got my flu shot a. Because work mandates us b. Because my ob recommended it. So Friday started getting a scratchy throat. Yesterday a cough set in and today I woke up and my throat hurts so bad I can barely swallow. I know my immune system is down because of pregnancy but this is ridiculous. I'm tired of being sick. Not to mention I am trying to save up my pto for after the baby is born. But it is hard to go to work and take care of others (nurse) when you don't feel good yourself. Ok just venting, lol.

So sorry girl. I had a wicked cold two weeks ago - it was awful. I am never sick so I wasn't used to it. I did take the approved stuff though.

I'm in the same boat. Friday I got a UTI then saturday morning woke up with an AWFUL sinus infection that will not get better.  It really makes you appreciate medicine when you cant take any! lol.  I hope you feel better soon!
