well that explains it!

I decided since I took a sick day from work I would go to urgent care to see if my severe congestion was an infection.

Turns out I do have a sinus infection Sad I've had it for a couple of weeks!

Also, I guess I've been overdosing on Sudafed which explains my extreme insomnia! I switched back to my pre-pregnancy allergy meds (doc said it was okay) to help the congestion. I guess that has the same ingredients as Sudafed, so I've been double dipping for the past few days.

Hopefully the antibiotics will help the congestion and I will dump the Sudafed because it stopped working anyway.

Praying for some sleep tonight :sleeping:

Oh wow, I find the "pregnancy rhinitis" (or whatever it's called) bad enough as it is, I can't imagine having a sinus infection right now. I hope the meds clear it up quickly for you and you can get some rest!

Thanks for the well wishes. I actually feel worse today Sad I think all the sudafed I was taking masked the symptoms. Now I really feel sick! And the antibiotics are making me nauseous.

Sinus infections are the worst! Pregnant or not!! I always feel worse when I start the antibiotics, maybe tomorrow is your day!

Also, I'm convinced sinus infections lead to unexpected twin pregnancies. Just sayin'...
