God I am just full of snot and my eyes keep running and I feel like pooh. My hubby has got the lurgy too but of course he's got it ten times worse than I have so he'll be taking a sickie from work and lying in bed all day while I run around after my little toddlington and him. Ah, the life of a mother...There's no calling in sick in this job!
Yeh he is im trying to avoid him now. I havent felt well all weekend so the woman next door and her hubby have got lucas for me which really helps, I needed a break. If I still feel like this tomorrow, i'll make an emergency doctors appt.
I got some of those berocca vitamins. They are large tablets that you put into water to turn into a drink (doesn't taste too bad) and its supposed to give you a boost. I've only been taking them 2 days and so far cold is still here
I guess it's cause pregnancy feels different to every person. From my personal experience (3 pregnancies) when a baby moves it feels like a wave rippling throiugh your belly. Sometimes it kinda tickles and nudges out. It's a great feeling but sometimes it gets a bit much when your trying to sleep on your side and the baby is kicking the matress. Lol
Do you guys have airborne in the uk? It really works for stopping a cold! It sounds like what you described beck. It's an effervescent tablet that you dissolve into a glass of liquid (it actually tastes really good, like oranges). Knocked my cold out before it could kick my butt...
Zinc lozenges work really well for lessening the length and intensity of a cold. They have the ones that are like cough drops now (cold eeze) which are super convienent. If you can find them at the drug store the zinc lozenges which come in a vitamin bottle work best.
My mother uses them and has not had a bad cold in 21 years!!! No kidding!
When you first start noticing the symptoms of a cold (dry throat, sneezing, sniffles, etc) you start taking them according to the instructions, or like one an hour for all waking hours for the first day. It is important to suck the lozenge and not chew it. I will warn you that though they don't taste bad they leave a nasty aftertaste and will make you super thirsty.
The zinc adheres to your mucus membranes and doesn't let the virus attach.
Have you recently ingested any zinc cold remedies? These products can cause olfactory nerve damage which results in odd smells/tastes and even a complete loss thereof. I have olfactory nerve damage from a zinc cold remedy (cough lozenges) and I smell sulphur or burnt hair all the time. When the damage first occured I smelled ammonia very strongly.
