I have swine flu

Hi ladies hope all's well. I have been unwell for 4 days, it started sunday with a sore throat then everyday since i have got worse. Today i feel horrid and the doctor said its swine flu, he gave me some medication called relenza its an inhalation type, dr said its safe to take in pregnancy but really dont like taking it. I hope i feel better soon because i miss my son and want him to come home (he's with my mum for a few days until i feel better) Just wanted to tell you ladies that as soon as you feel unwell please go straight to the dr and not leave it like i did thinking its just a bad cold. Wanted to tell everyone as im feeling sorry for myself. Kelly x
