So the discomfort I was feeling this morning has really improved - I think it was in part due to digestion. Ugh. But this afternoon I developed a headache and fever! My throat is a little sore and I've coughed some, but it's not too bad. I'm mostly concerned it could be the flu as I haven't had a chance to get my flu shot yet!
What should I do?
I was just sick with what felt like the flu. I would say make sure you drink plenty of water and get lots of sleep. I hope you feel better soon because being sick, especially while pregnant, sucks! Also you can take Tylonal for the headaches. I took Robitussin for my cough and it worked really great. It's safe during pregnancy. Also Tylonal Cold you can take. I took that too (not at the same time though). And also call your OB just in case. It never hurts.
Feel better soon!

I agree- LOTS of extra water and tylenol. Dehydration can happen quickly with fever, cold/flu, whatever.. especially when you just don't feel like getting up to do things for yourself as much. Make sure you get seen ASAP if it goes to your lungs though, because this bronchitis junk takes FOREVER to clear up!
Hope you feel better soon! You are doing exactly right....fluids and Tylenol! Also, if you're getting sinus congestion, use a Netipot or some other salt water irrigation for your nose. Its no fun being sick, especially not while you're pregnant.
