Hi Ladies sorry to have been gone so long, I will have to read back soon. Updated my journal, but came down with one illness after another. Did any of you have pregnancy rhinitis? I have had it since about week 11 and it got worse leading to a sinus infection that then infected my throat leading to laryngitis and as we all know, nooothing you can truly have for meds to relieve... I am back however, and have my 16 wk appt this afternoon. Anxiously awaiting it to make sure all is well in there with LO after the beat down Mommy took over the last week with illness. Hope you are all doing well.
I've had issues with my sinuses since early on.. I sleep with a cool mist humidifier in my room now, and I put a small Dab of Vicks under my nose at night.. I also sleep with raised pillows.. Other then that I just constantly try a d blow my nose ( which does nothing)
Thanks SKEET, WANTANERD and ARMYW. I am feeling soooooooo much better today. My appt went very well yesterday, was very quick. The LO is doing well although mommy has been sicker than ever. My BP and everything was great and we have our gender scan set for 12.31!!! What a wonderful day for a surprise right! We will ring in the new year knowing exactly what we are having and DD will be happy to find out how she is a big sister!!!! We are looking forward to the day. The doc gave me some sudafed to help continue to dry up my sinuses and keep the headaches down. I was the happiest ever to have meds!!! I have a vaporizer that I used the last couple of nights. I am moving to the cool midst this weekend as the doc believes that the infection will be gone and I will just be left with the pregnancy rhinitis I've had all along.
