I don't like taking medicine, especially not being pregnant, and I don't WANT to take it now.. but I'm miserable. my nose is stuffy & runny, my chest is congested, my throat is full of mucous too, NO fever, but I just need something to hold me over the weekend.. if I'm not better by monday I'm just going to the doctor.
anyway, I'm 29w1d -- my list of safe medications clearly indicates that I can take Sudafed, BUT.. I can't/won't/don't swallow pills. I went to Walgreens & the pharmacist, great help by the way (sarcasm included), said children's sudafed would work just as good.. so I got "Children's Sudafed: Nasal Decongestant" -- I followed the instructions for the oldest age on there, which is from ages 6-11, and I took 2 tsp.
does ANYONE know if this is going to do any good? I've been suffering for the past couple of days, and I even feel like my baby boy isn't moving like his usual self. I have a friend who is a nurse who says me being sick doesn't affect him, but it's such a coincidence that as SOON as I get sick.. he doesn't move as much. I do NOT have a fever, so technically there's nothing "wrong" that could be affecting him, nothing has changed as far as my habits, maybe I'm not eating & drinking as much?.. I'm just freaking out..
ugh, I'm just a mess.. somebody, anybody?!
thank you so much.. keep us in your prayers. ❤
