With DD2 and then really bad with DD3!! With DD3 it was so bad Dr finally said lets induce at 39 weeks. I was miserable and had taken antibiotics, well what low dose they could give me, nothing helped! Benadryl usually helps me rest some and is safe. Hope you feel better soon!!

Vitamin D girl...and Vit. C. And if you can get your hands on some raw honey that would be great.

I haven't been sick at all yet which is strange...usually by this point I've had three colds and one round with flu. And a couple cases of strep. I'm so sick every winter it's ridiculous...I think baby has superpowers to keep away colds. O_o

Hope you feel better soon!

All I have had is a sinus infection the first few weeks of my pregnancy. I'm really shocked I haven't been sick more. Especially with the germs my boys bring from school. I usually get sick more often.

I hope it clears up soon

Yep, Kate brings home germs from playgroups. My routine when pregnant is hot soups/tea, nasal rinse/neti pot, vit C (dr told me not to take more than 1000mg per day), and try to rest. And repeat over and over that I will NOT get sick.

I've had a cold like 4 times since being pregnant...thats like once a month. Its horrible...our immune system is low and we catch anything. Guess working at a school doesn't help either. Hang in there girl.

I had bronchitis for a month, not exaggerating. And then I just got over the stomach flu, had it for a week.

on the bronchitis.... blah. I've been ok since but we were around sick kids all weekend so who knows what's coming next. I'm hoping nothing. The weather has a lot to do with me getting sick and it's been warmer than usual here so I'm hoping I'll be ok. Pretty much anytime I get sick it goes straight to my chest - no fun but at least I'm used to it. Someone said try honey, I second that.

I hope you all feel better!!

I had a cold early on but knock on wood that has been the only one so far. I hope you feel better soon. I always drank a cup of tea with honey in it before bed. That seemed to help me sleep.

I have one right now. Ugh. My cough is so bad I sound like a dying seal LOL. I have asthma on top of it, so its really bad. I have been taking a little Robitussin (OK per my doctor, so try it out if your doc says its ok!) but I refuse to take my inhalor unless I'm literally dying, because it is a known Category C, so to be the risks outway the benefits at this point, unless its a serious attack. Tea with Honey works wonders for the 15min it takes me to drink it it isn't long lasting though sadly.

DH has a cold right now. Really praying I don't get it and the prenatals will help keep me healthy. My doctor said regular Sudafed is fine to take.

The robitussin helped a lot with my cough. Hope you start feeling better!

I have also been sick like 3 times this pregnancy. So ridiculous! With my first I wasn't sick once, same time of year. Well that's what happens when you are around pre-school age kids I guess. Except I got sick more then my son, so I guess I can't blame him! Hang in there.
