I'm STILL sick!

I finally went to the doctor today. As it turns out, I have a sinus infection and now bronchitis. I have been given antibiotics and a cough medicine that I've been assured are safe to take while being pregnant. Sunday I felt a lot better and we went to my sister's house and I even did a little bit of laundry and house work. But, when we got home Sunday night I felt horrible again. I have had a sinus headache for the last three days. When I say headache, I'm not talking here and there. It has been CONSTANT, almost like a vise in my head scrunching my brain slowly but surely! It's been very miserable. Today, I went to see my family doctor and he reassured me that I could take these medicines and I needed to use a vaporizer to help break "that stuff" up as well as hot showers. This should help a lot.

Anyhow, I've been resting most of the day I just wanted to post a quick update for you all. Hopefully tomorrow I will feel like going back to work. I'm really getting tired of this house!!!

Aw, Tish, I'm sooooo sorry you're ill. It sucks to be ill, especially when you're pregnant. I remember getting bronchitis when I was 8 months pregnant with my son. Not fun.

I'm sorry that you are still under the weather. I was hoping the medication would have kicked in by now. Just get better honey. Big hug. :)

Im so sorry you're sick...being prego on top of that doesnt help because you cant take something that will actually work. Im getting over a cold that hit me out of the blue. I think its because of everything going on in my life..my immune system is way down. Anyway, I hope you feel better. I love that pic of you and the kids!! Happy WW my friend...

I need to get one of those for the hubman!
I can honestly say I know how you feel...I'm still fighting mine, too. The "Neti Pot" does help but it doesn't work well when you actually have an infection...
Take care, hon...
