Why do a lot of people say they had a brief "cold" during the 2ww and that is a good sign? Is that a common pregnancy symptom? Why just a brief cold?

sorry for so many questions but it's something I keep wondering about!

I don't know what it means or how it happens or what it helps but I do know that with both of mine and some of my friends they got a small stuffy nose cold that really wasn't a problem right before they found out they were pregnant and through much of the 1st trimester. It was strange. But I have had it!

I know that nasal congestion can be a sign of pregnancy. I believe it is due to increased blood flow.

Some pple get to know they are pregnant when they get some RARE cold. My neighbor, a mom of two boys knows that way...she claims it is different from other colds she ever gets, and the one in 2WW tells her the truth...as she puts it!!

I know I had a cold sore with Trinity...before testing BFP
