So miserable!

I have been miserable all weekend and today is just even worse. My nose is so stuffy that when I talk or even swallow, my ears pop and this saline nose spray does not work at all!!! Sad The triple digit heat just makes it worse and the fact that I am out of breath all the time anways, makes it 10 times worse since I can't breathe. A stranger on the elevator even commented at how miserable I look and said for me to get better soon so it must be pretty bad! Do you any of you know any wonder drug I can take that is safe for pregnancy besides Sudafed (that does not work at all for me)?

Oh and to make matters worse, the checker at the grocery store on Saturday asked when I'm due and when I told her October 1st, her eyes got real big and she said "Oh my! I thought you were going to say that you're due like next week or something! Bless your heart!" WTH!! I am not that BIG! :angry1:

Idont want to hijack your thread but for other reasons I am just as miserable today! I can barely function, mostly cuz of this extreme hip pain that started a couple days ago. I really need someone to take my kids today, my DH has been away for a week and just got home at 4am. I CANT WAIT for him to get off work today!!!
That is pretty much the same reaction I have been getting from people when I tell them when I am due. It scares the crap outta me! I really need to take some pics, I have sort of been avoiding it!
I hope we both feel better and get some rest SOON!
ps, I get sinus issues a lot and the only thing that really helps me is my sinus rinse, it is made by NeilMed. It isnt a spray, you actually push saline solution through one side of your nose and out the other side to rinse it out. When it is really bad I do it a few times a day, it isnt pleasant but it does work. It is like $15 for a kit with the salt packets but well worth it if you are miserable. It is sort of like a netipot. It wasnt until after using one of these that I realized that most of my headaches my whole life have probably come from sinus issues. GL!

You are the 2nd person to tell me about this today! I'm going to go buy one today after work. I am praying it works! Hope you feel better soon too!

I bought the Walgreens brand sinus flush. I got the squeeze bottle instead of the neti pot and I feel soooo much better!!! The box even says it helps relieve symptoms of Pregnancy Rhinitis and it really does work!! I think what I have is really allergies, but I'm glad I got it for when I do get the stuffy pregnancy nose every now and then.

So the sinus flush thing worked great the first time, but the 2nd time I used it, the water solution kept going down my throat instead of out the other nostril (I know it sounds so disgusting). Now it sounds like I have fluid in my left ear and it hurts so I think I gave myself an ear infection and I still can't breathe. I can't win either way! Sad
