I am just 10 weeks and have been hit with the cold that plagued my partner (he still has the sniffles) last week.
So far I have been using my neti-pot so I can breathe at night - its slightly more complicated because I have sleep apnea and have to sleep with a mask on my face. So breathing is important to me right now!
And gargling with salt/water... I have been drinking a ton of lemon water and tea with lemon and honey as recommended by my midwife but am wondering if anyone has done anything that I am not already doing? Obviously I am making sure I get a lot more rest too.
I am still seeing clear fluids in my kleenex and am not coughing anything up (the salt/water trick works everytime for the throat!) so I am not worried about needing meds from the doc but would love to clear my sinuses in a better way than using the neti-pot. It works but is making me get sick after because of the pressure, etc.
