I'm finally better sick wise. But this cough is killer, and its more of a throat cough than a lung cough. The other day I was coughing so bad I strained both side ab muscles, and well I learned you can do basically nothing withouth those muscles! I'm coughing up mucus, not all the tome, but I never know which cough will bring up a ball of mucus, this is just not right! Then I was coughing last night and felt a stab of pain in a section of my belly where my csection scar is. Worse part, doc said it could last a good 4-6 weeks!
4-6 weeks? Ouch. That's a pain. I had a cold too, and now am left with coughing and abdomen pain. I tried lots of home remedies and got nowhere. How frustrating. Especially now as we should be sleeping as much as possible before the really hard part of pregnancy kicks in (3rd trimester) and then the baby comes. Drink lots of water. That seemed to help me a bit. I have become friends with the washroom at work, but I felt it lessened the duration of my cold a little bit.
I'm drinking so much because my mouth is also dry so I'm even drinking when not thirsty! I cough and then spit just to make sure if I did cough even a tiny bit of mucus up I don't swallow it. Yep 4-6 weeks, I sure hope not though because I am done!
