Cold. Again.

After a whole night where I dreamt of humidifiers, chapstick, and lotion (no joke), I had a hunch I was getting sick yesterday. This morning, my suspicions were confirmed when I woke up with a bad cold. This marks the second cold I’ve had since getting pregnant, and UGHHHH getting sick while pregnant should not be a thing.

I swear we wash our hands, but as someone who lives with a toddler (preschooler?) who attends daycare and a husband who works with the public and handles money all day, I’m kind of doomed.

My midwives didn’t recommended the flu shot for me this year (and sort of tried to dissuade me from getting it, actually, since they aren’t very pro-vaccine) but I’m still considering it. The last thing I need is to get the flu on top of having survived multiple colds and a stomach bug already. Good grief.

    Everyone in my house is suffering from a cold right now so I feel the pain! Thankfully I’m at least not pregnant. When I was pregnant with William I think I had a cold a month. Regular Sudafed was all I could take and you better bet I loaded up on it!
