Hello, I usually just lurk and havent posted in a while but Im hoping any of you could help ease my concerns. Am 38 weeks pregnant and used my neti pot on Tuesday to try to beat this cold before baby comes. I used my neti pot which I rarely use I brought the water to a boil but it porbbaly only boiled for 30 seconds maybe a minute. I later read it should boil for 3-5 to kill a rare but deadly parasite. Im feeling very concerned now, and since I still have this cold Im getting a sinus headache and my anxiety is convincing me its tye parasite, even thoug I know its super rare. I just want to be so excited for my baby but am more anxious that I have a deadly parasite. Im concerned Im at a hogher risk for it being pregnant and thus immunocompromised. Ive read tons of stories online where people say they have just used plan tap water and were always fine but none of them.were pregnant. If you have any expeeience that might help give me peace please share.
