Ugh...sick already

Not morning sickness, a cold! Last pregnancy I managed to stay healthy until 30 weeks, but this morning I woke up with an extremely sore throat. Just a virus, says the doctor.

Being sick while pregnant is the WORST because you can't take any good medications to manage the symptoms! Add that to the fact that I'm a singer and voice teacher and basically can't do my job while sick and it's just really upsetting. I'm going to have to cancel 6 students tomorrow at least, which is quite a bit of money lost! :angry1:

I hate being sick!!!!!!!!!

I am sorry that you are sick. That stinks that it affects your job. I know the feeling about not being able to take any good drugs while preggo. Even for a headache I most times refuse to take anything. I hope you feel better soon.

Ughh! I am so sorry you are sick! Its the worst when you can't just down some Nyquill! Sorry 2

I had a cold 2 weeks ago...I was so worried that I would be sick forever without being able to take anything but I got prescribed a Z-pac (my ob-gyn said it was safe to take) and with that a plenty of OJ and hot lemon / honey i was better in 2 days...
I wish you a speedy recovery.... especially since you have to miss work!

You probably know this being a singer, but I really find a warm salt water gurgle helps relieve a sore throat. Feel better soon!
