I've been sick for the past week.

My last full day in New York, I got rained on and my sneakers/socks were soaked through. Came back to Miami on Tuesday and the cold weather followed us. By Wednesday, I was sick. Left for a cruise on Friday and the cold weather actually followed us to the Bahamas. Not only did I relapse fully back into sick but I picked up an ear infection and had to deal with that for two whole days on a boat. Tried to go to my primary yesterday only to be told that I now have to see the OB/GYN for everything but my 1st appt isn't until Friday and the dr was out in surgery yesterday. Thankfully they called in the antibiotics for me and I'm just waiting for this stuff to kick in. What has kicked in is an overly sensitive nose, so I spent a miserably nauseous day at work where I teach 100 girls daily, each one wearing a different scent. One girl in my 6th period class had on my least favorite scent, a peachy smell. But with this nose, I spent the class with my sweater covering my nose. Hope this isn't the way the rest of the trimester is going to go.

So to sum up: my throat hurts from coughing, my ear is filled with fluid and hurts, my stomach is not my best friend, and I'm filled with mucous just sitting in my throat daring me to try to cough it up so that I can launch into full-blown chunk chuck.

*Groan*

I feel you.... I have a cough/headache/stuffy nose thing going on & there's nothing safe to take! I didn't know it was best to see the OB even for a cold. Good to know!

Thanks, ladies.

The head cold is gone but I spent a veeeeery miserable night coughing. Don't think I fell into a good sleep until around 3 or 4 only to get up at 5.

The ear is sloooooowly getting better. Just now realized the fluid is gone from it though it's still a little muted. It was horrible this morning. Guess the antibiotics are kicking in 2 days later; I'm used to the stuff working right away.

Water makes the mucous/nausea problem worse so I found that I've been drinking less. I used to drink like a fish. Going to have to find a workable substitute.

Sorry you feel so miserable! I taught prior to having our kids and go figure the year I was pregnant I got the kids right after their gym period. UGH!!! Talk about stinky teenage boys!

Hope you feel better soon!
