I started coming down with this cold last Saturday (5 days ago). You know how that feels...the rawness in the back of your throat and nose that Tylenol does nothing to help. Rawness accompanied by achy, sneezing and headache...we've all had it. The stupid common cold. Usually, in my experience, these really uncomfortable symptoms last about a day or two then the congestion sets in and though you sound worse, you feel a lot better.
This time? Not the case! I'm thinking it must have something to do with being pregnant. I have had these awful raw symptoms for 5 days now. Where’s the snot?? The snot that soothes this terrible rawness that makes food taste horrible and even water feels gross going down. I would rather be so stuffy that I can't taste a thing than feel like this!!!
Sorry to be such a Debbie Downer, but spring has Sprung and it's so nice outside, but I hardly feel like leaving my house. I guess all my body's nutrients and immunity are focused on growing a healthy baby, so that's why this cold is taking so much longer to kick. Ugh...any day now would be great!!
Nursery update: Even though I've felt like crap, I've been slowly getting things together in there. Little bits at a time then I go lay down. It's so much fun that I can't help myself even though I feel like shit. Pictures are coming soon!!
