Ughhhh.. that's all I've been able to say lately. I have been SO sick for a week now. It's not going anywhere either. I'm too stubborn to go to a Family Doctor. It just seems like such a nuisance. But I may have to break down and go..

It started in my chest, which is odd for me. I never get sick with anything in my chest. I've been coughing up gunk non stop! You'd think it'd all break loose and go away, but NO it just gets worse every day. And now it has moved to my head. The entire left side of my face is swollen. My left cheek bone and eye feel like they are sticking out an inch further than they're supposed to. Ouch!

Everyone has been harping "It's the pollen!" But I have my doubts. It's definitely an infection of some sort. I'd even go as far as to say I have Bronchitis, the way i've been coughing.. I've also gone through an entire box of Kleenex and bag of Hall's Cough Drops!

Ughhh, I need relief! Antibiotics please..


  1. Oh no! I hope you feel better soon!

  2. I know how you feel. I got sick like that at the end of both pregnancies. Our immunity lacks while being pregnant. You should go to the doctor. Mine cleared up quickly. I had bronchitis and upper respiratory infection both times. I hope yours isn't that bad.

  3. I'm 23 weeks and have the same symptoms...they can't xray me but said it sounded like bronchitis so that is what they treated me's been 3 weeks and I'm still coughing but thankfully no more stuffiness in my head! But we all know coughing while you are prego is no fun! HA! Hope you feel better soon!

  4. i hope you feel better soon! its no fun being pregnant and sick...i feel your pain!!

  5. Feel better! Preggo and sick is a terrible combo :(
