Worse today...

I feel terrible today. An elephant is sitting on my chest or something. I can't breath...I can't blow my nose because my nose is RAW...my head feels like it weighs 45 lbs.

Cue the violins, I know. I am going back to bed.

Just getting caught up on your posts from the weekend.

Sorry you're sick. :( The worst part about being sick while pregnant is that you can't take much medicine.

I'm praying for a healthy pregnancy and heartbeat for you, so post as soon as you find out! When will you go in, by the way?

You may have already tried this, but get some plain nasal saline solution (make sure it's unmedicated). Spray 10 sprays up each nostil, but don't sniff it up. Just let it run out into the sink. Then blow your nose. Do this 3 times a day. It's like garggling for your nose! LOL I'm 8 weeks pg and got a sinus infection almost straight away. I swear by this remedy!

You might also boil some water and put some menthol vapors in it and pour it in a bowl. Hang your head over the bowl with a towel over your head and breathe deeply for 10 minutes or so.

Hope you get to feeling better soon!

Another thing that is helpful is the neti pot or a nasal rinse bottle.

Personally I prefer the nasal rinse bottle. It really works for allergies and sinus infections.

Another remedy that works is an equal amount of apple cider vinegar, honey and warm water. Doesn't taste that great but helps.
