I am generally an incredibly healthy person. My immune system is strong, and I usually only get sick once a year, if that. However, when I do get sick, I’m out for the count. I’m pretty much a shell of a human being until I am healthy again.
This morning I woke up with a really, really, really sore and swollen throat. I have that awful feeling like I’m about to get hit with a nasty cold/flu/virus/something.
My boss, who was working with me in New York last week, just emailed me to say that she is still out sick with the flu. Kill. Me. Now. Almost exactly 2 years ago I got the flu for the first (and only) time. I was out for an entire week, literally laying on the couch and crying about how sick I was. This is NOT like me. The flu kicked my ass. And that was WITH lovely drugs like Tamiflu. Thinking of facing that kind of illness while pregnant and unable (or unwilling) to take a lot of heavy drugs scares me.
But I’ll think try to positively. Maybe it’s just a little cold? Any home remedies you suggest that are safe for pregnant ladies?
