Ugh I am so miserable. For the past week I've been constantly sneezing which was no big deal. Then starting about 4 days ago I started getting a stuffy nose that turned into a constantly dripping one. That was accompanied by a sore throat. Now today I have a drippy nose, sore throat and headache. It's not even cold season yet!! Argh! So I was doing some research and now I wonder if it's the pretty common Pregnancy Rhinitis. I have so much to do today but I just want to go back to bed! I feel so out of it, fuzzy-headed.

I have no Tylenol in the house and I really don't want to go out today. Does anyone know if taking 1 caplet of Excedrin Migraine is okay? (Acetaminophen, Aspirin and 65 mg Caffeine) is okay? I don't really have a doctor to call yet. Edit: nevermind. I checked safefetus and aspirin is a no-no.

Yeah aspirin is a no-no..

I would maybe call a relative or a good friend and ask if the will do some shopping for you and get you the things you may need.

also try other remedies.. I loved hot soups.. Showers, hot tea, fruits when I was sick and try to get plenty of rest when you can.

If you dont feel well call your doctor as well. I personally think you have a cold.. so look after yourself.

Thanks everyone. Yeah I woke up even worse. Got to be a cold or flu. I'm also achy and had a slight fever yesterday. I've got a bottle of tylenol now, but am only going to take one if I get beyond miserable. Looks like I get a lazy day on the couch. Whooo..

I would say it sounds much more like a cold or something. I am ALWAYS stuffy when I get pregnant, but it's never as bad as it sounds like you feel. ((((((((Hugs))))))))) I hope you start feeling better soon!
