I have it. And a cough. And an ear infection. So let me tell you about this.

I cannot eat because my throat hurts. I've contemplated getting a spittoon just so I can stop swallowing altogether. No not really, I'm still drinking a ton of water and popping cough drops like there's no tomorrow. But I still can't eat. And so what does Baby in Utero do to me? Makes me throw up. THROW UP. After eating NOTHING. With a sore throat. I wanted to knock myself over the head with something hard and have it all end right there. Instead I just force myself to eat, because it hurts a little less going down than the stomach acid does coming up. And I thought having a cold was bad.

This brings my "pity Kes" post to an end. Thank you for reading it, and for subsequently finding it in your heart to pity me.

So sorry you have to suffer through all of this! I have been having either a bad cold or allergies for a few days now with a bad sore throat and this cough is killing me.
I cannot imagine having strep throat and an ear infection too! Ouch! I really hope you start to feel better ASAP!

I had tonsilitis (very similiar to strep) my first few weeks preggo and it was THE worst! I know how you feel try gurgling warm salt water. It'll help with the sore throat and maybe you can eat right after you do so. Feel better!!!

I don't know if I did it wrong or what, but gargling didn't help anything at all when I tried it yesterday. =(

oh no!! Gargling never helps for me, though it is supposed to. When my throat hurts usually the only thing I can drink is dark soda, like Coke, because the carbonation feels good.

Oh i'm so sorry!! I can't imagine throwing up with a sore throat For me since i get nauseous when my stomach is hungry i'm sure that would be the cause of the vomitting. I've had strep throat so many times in my life that it never stops me from eating. Honestly it takes a lot to get this lady to stop eating The most helpful thing for me has always been lots of cough drops and water which you're already doing. Hope you feel better soon!

I am so sorry. I have been suffering from bronchitis and strep too. I ended up having to take the antibiotics because it just would not get better It is the worst when you have to vomit with the sore throat though. Hope it clears up fast for you!
