The Quot Common Cold Quot

This isn't a question it's just kind of a story I find funny haha. I woke up with a cold and bad cough today and I'm 32 weeks pregnant. A cold is a cold...there are no cures and not too many medications you can take while your pregnant which sucks. My grandmother finds out about this little cold and is like OMG are you ok? Call the doctor!!! I was like (exact words) "ummm, what is a doctor going to do about it?" It's a little cold, she said it's really bad to have a cold while pregnant. Whats a dr. gonna tell me, drink fluids and pop in some vitamin C suppliments? lol. Sorry I just think it's funny because pregnancy is sooo much different than back in 1972 haha. If all of us pregnant women called up the doctor when we had a cold, the dr. would go nuts! Anyways, just sharing my story. I don't mean to offend anyone. Good luck and happy pregnancies ladies!!

I am totally with you! I have had a cold for the last week and I absolutely HATE IT!!! I cant breath at night, I cant take any drugs to make it go away... I just wanna scream! But everyone tells me oh go see the doctor but really all he will say is drink water lol I drink lots already!! I have succ_mbed to the nasal spray though. Its bad enough I have a hard time breathing cuz of baby, now that I am clogged its worse! SO I take a shot of nasal spray before bed and its much more bearable! I am 39 weeks so I figure how much harm can it really do... :) hope you get well soon!!
