Catching a cold/ Getting Sick as an early pregnancy symptom????
I was just wondering how many of you lovely ladies caught a cold and were sick during your cycle that you got your BFP? I have heard that this is a good early pregnancy symptom and was wondering how many people actually experienced this. I had a soar throat, stuffed up nose, achey and head cold for about a week now, I am now feeling better today though and just have the runny nose and flem stuff left over.... Thanks in advance for your responses!!!
Yes! At about 4 weeks i got a night of fever, sickness and terrible dizziness. It only lasted a few hours but i couldn't walk and my OH had to call NHS direct because it scared the cr*p out of me! The doctor later said the immune system drops when pregnant and so a lot of ladies get early symptoms.
Yep! A pp is correct! The immune system drops its guard in order for your body to not reject the pregnancy...
Also, there is something called "pregnancy rhinitis" - basically an ongoing cold throughout pregnancy. Turns out I have it...yuck! Sinus pressure, runny nose, etc...ah well, it's all worth it for the little bean!
Thanks again for the feed back ladies and for sharing your stories!!!
Just some symptom spotting from me, I am still getting over my cold that i have had for about the last 6 days as you girls already know, and I am on the last leg of it, with blowing my nose and coughing up crap..... well I just threw up some of my lunch.... so of course I am hoping it is because I am pregnant, but it might be from all of the flem and crap and coughing that made me do it.... ugghhhh... not fun...
