Kristi and Pico good luck!!! And yes, OPKs are welcome.
Pico - I don't know of any good decongestants that don't dry up CM, but have you thought about doing other remedies, like a neti pot? I know that it's kind of gross, but I find that when I'm stuffy or have a runny nose I can usually do the neti pot and get some relief, at least for a little while. That wouldn't dry you up. Honey seems to work okay for coughing, or hot tea with honey and lemon for a sore throat. Maybe some of those more natural "home remedies" could help without hindering TTC? Anyway, good luck!
I use nasal spray, since it generally doesn't affect the whole body. Is that something you'd be up for?
Sorry about the cold.
TTC while sick is the pits! When we conceived my DD2, my hubby was laying in bed for a week with a double EI, strep throat and on heavy duty ABX. I basically took serious advantage of him in his most vulnerable state. lol.
Good to hear you're keeping busy Mara. Yeah having 2 is a trip! Fiona is great!! Still teeny but she's a pistol. I have never heard a child at this age speak as well as she does. It's hilarious.
I POAS this morning, but have packed the camera back in the bag. The line was super faint, I think af will still be arriving while I'm on holidays. If I have a sticky bean I will post pictures when I come back
Oh, good luck! I hope it's sticky. Enjoy your trip.
Nasal spry is a good idea. I'll give it a try. It's amazing the things we'll work through when TTC. I'd rather TTC while sick than be in labor while sick, though. given the choice. I've done that too and that is really unpleasant.
