Pregnancy during cold/flu season. Is this what I have to look forward to?

I have had a cold for two weeks. I caught it from Cason (who by the way was only sick for 2 days!). I just cannot seem to kick it, and I assume it's because my immune system is crap. I hope I don't spend the rest of this pregnancy being sick off and on, but I guess I'll be catching every germ my 3 year old brings back from school, huh?

  • I was pregnant this time last year and in my occupation I get all kinds of germs.  My ob recommended to take vitamin C tablets and drink tons and tons of water.  It seemed like my immune system was in overdrive all the time. 

    Rest!  Feel better soon.

  • Got a nasty cold about this time of year while pregnant with Isaac.  Kicked my butt, sinus infection and all.  Antibiotics did little to nothing.  What finally did the trick was the Neti Pot or a saline rinse.  In three days the crud (nasty nasty nasty crud) was out of my head and I got better.

  • When I was pregnant with Tyler I found I got everything, versus when I was preggo with Matthew.  I even got my first sinus infection, after having some crud for at least 2 weeks.  I did find, not sure if it's what did the trick, but getting a flu shot helped.  Feel better and get as much rest as you can!
  • I have been sick twice during this pregnancy and its pure misery!!!!  I broke down and took approved meds a few days though. Just had to.  Hang in there mama. Up that vitamin C and make sure you are getting lot of rest and fluids.

    After 6 long years of TTC and a traumatic birth... I finally got to hold my baby in my arms!
