Ok, wise mamas. I'm hoping someone here has a miracle cure for me!
I've had this really horrible cold for about a week now and there are NO signs it is getting better. Several times during the course of this cold, I thought it was maybe going to get better. Instead, I spent a restless two hours in bed trying to fall asleep last night because I couldn't breathe out of either nostril at ALL. (Mouth breathing isn't so relaxing when you're tired.) Today, I'm just as congested and blah-feeling as ever... and now, I can't even taste food which is really not fair. Spicy mexican shouldn't taste like air.
I've tried vitamin C, garlic lemonade, lots of herbal teas, the wet sock therapy, trying to sleep (hahaha), homemade soup... none of my usual remedies are really doing ANYTHING to budge this cold at all.
The only time I got sick with DS was the week I went into labor but this is the second time I've been sick this pregnancy. (The first cold took me 2 weeks to get rid of. Must be something about chasing toddler, building a body, working FT, caring for DS FT (while working)....)
Does anyone have a miracle cold cure that they wouldn't mind sharing? I don't know how much more of this I can stand!
