My fiance got sick about a week ago. I tried my hardest to keep my hands clean, and avoid those germs like the plague, but they found me! I started coming down with it about 2 days ago, but it wasn't bad at all, just a little scratchy throat. I figured I lucked out and only got a mild case of it. WRONG! I woke up this morning...throat was on fire, nose was plugged, I was coughing up my lungs, my head hurts, and my ears hurt. I know the medications that they approve for pregnancy, and they do absolutely nothing for me. Leaves a gross taste in my mouth and makes my stomach sour. So the meds are a no go. I ran a hot shower and sat in the bathroom for a bit to breathe in the steam. My nose is slightly better, but nothing else improved. I have to work, unfortunately, but luckily I go on maternity leave on the 27th. I have drank quite a bit of red raspberry leaf tea with cinnamon in it, and that hasn't done anything. I started drinking that before I got it hoping that it may keep it at bay, and of course it's good for labor as well. I definitely would like any suggestions that you ladies have. I was hoping to go into labor here soon, but I don't even want to until I'm better! I don't want the baby around the germs, and I don't want to labor while I feel this bad. Now that I'm sick, my body will probably decide that it's time to pop the baby out!
