I think I caught a cold while I was in the hospital last Thursday. On Friday I woke up with a sore throat and a stuffy runny nose. Well, my nose is still very stuffy, and I have having a really hard time breathing. I feel like I am gasping for air, especially when I feel Layne stretching out. Well for the last hour my face has even gone numb because of it. Grrrrr.

Any suggestions?

It sounds like very bad congestion. So I would try a couple of things, steam bath or boil water put a towel over your head and breath, it will help clear up some congestion. Also, water and salt, it might not work for a long time but since it's harmless, you can do it a couple of times. Drinks lots of water.
I hope the 2 of you feel better soon.

Ditto this. I hope you feel better soon. Also another thing you can do is put a humidifier in the bedroom.

Also, cut an onion and breath it in, it will open your sinuses. When DS is sick, I cut an onion and leave it in his room, it will make you hungry but it seems to work.

I'll have to try that. I've never heard of it before!

A few times during this pregnancy, my nose has been so stuffed I could barely breathe...I read up on Afrin and decided to take one squirt per nostril...I've done this a handful of times and it has been a lot of relief even if I'm no *technically* supposed to take Afrin...hope it clears up soon!

You can also try a neti pot to clean out your sinuses.

I have a netti pot, but after those 2 deaths from using it and tap water, (yes I am paranoid) I need to go and pick up some distilled water for it. The thought of something eating away at my brain makes my hypochondria even worse.
