Pregnant and sick! and just miserable. :(

I am 33 weeks pregnant. I got the dam cold bug that was goin around work. I tried so hard and failed. Just my luck. Neway. Its just the common head cold stuffy nose, and stuff like that. a few coughs here and there but not really a cough more of stuffy head and nose cold.
I think its getting better. Kinda just at a standstill. I guess. Haven't taken anything haven't called my doctor, yet. Any suggestions?
Also it feels like ther is a lot of pressure on my belly when I blow my nose. Is that bad for the baby?

  • Most awesome stuff and it is perfectly safe to use while you are pregnant and it WORKS! Sudafed PE Nasal Decongestant. It is non drowsy, it does NOT contain pseudoephedrine.
