Your mood can change on a dime. Your feet are swollen, you have heartburn, you can't sleep, and you can't stay away from the bathroom for longer than fifteen minutes. A lot of discomforts come with the joy of pregnancy. Adding the flu to that could be overwhelming, or much worse.
Since media announced an epidemic of respiratory illness in Mexico and the death of a 2-year-old in Texas, many have been wondering how dangerous this virus will be, what families can do to minimize chances of exposure, and how to respond if the flu does strike. Read on to find out.
I have been way too sick lately for it to just be morning sickness. I drink water, I eat food, NOTHING stays down. Is this just a simple case of the flu or something more serious?!?! HELP.
I am 6weeks pregnant and have just come down with a very bad flu virus, I am a bit worried as I thought my immune system is at it's peak while pregnant. I am only 6weeks gone an feel quite unwell - I miscarried this time last year @ 11weeks - I also had the flu then, I didn't realize I had miscarried until 13weeks. I am very worried and scared.
There are things you can really do to strengthen your immune system so it is more able to fight off pesky invaders, and less likely to over-react and attack your body (i.e., an autoimmune illness).
Studies show that women are more prone to colds and flus after having children -- and kids themselves are exposed to germs continually in childcare and preschool. So it's smart to take up arms against those microbial invaders!
I wasn't planning on a pregnancy at this time as I just graduated college and am just beginning a new job as a hair stylist. My boyfriend and I were planning a wedding maybe sometime next year. Then I was planning on at least working another full year before planning a family. I need to build a clientele. I'm 21. My last period was around April 2nd. I started to bleed but just one day, April 25th. My cycles vary -- 28 days to sometimes 45 days.
Talk to your doctor about the best treatment. You should not expect to get a prescription for antibiotics. If you have a viral infection, antibiotics will not cure it, help you feel better, or prevent someone else from getting your virus.
