DS and I have both had THE worst cold for 4 days now, going on 5. Take the sore throat, coughing, sneezing, not breathing through my nose, raw nostrils, and sinus headaches and pile that on top of the pregnancy-related constant nausea, exhaustion, vertigo, and round ligament pain (coughing and sneezing, OUCH) and THEN factor in taking care of an equally sick and miserable 15mo . . . I'm feeling very sorry for myself. Can't wait until this is over.

Welcome to the club! I'm on like day 11 of that.

Hot soup and hot tea helps with the congestion. Cold, wet cloth on the face helps soothe sinus pain.

Tis the season, for hot apple cider!

Not in your DDC : but there are some wonderful healing and symptom/pain relieving remedies in Aviva Jill Romm's The Natural Pregnancy Book.
