ugh!! I have had 2 colds with this last one being almost flu like. I'm losing weight and have to start protein shakes. And now I have a double ear infection!! Ugh!! The doctor wrote me 2 scripts, I'll start them tonight. It just really sucks because I finally started losing the morning sickness. I had 1 day where I felt awesome and bam! This crap started. I just want to feel good so I can enjoy this pregnancy!!

I hear you! Everyone in our house has been sick off an on for the past month, so I can't tell if I'm still tired due to pregnancy, tired due to illness, or tired due to babies keeping me up all night! Bleh! I hope you feel better quickly. * Jaime

Oh my goodness mama, I hope it all clears up for you soon, we had about 2 weeks of that a while back and I was soo miserable. Pregnant women should be immune across the board, it's not fair to be pg and sick at the same time.

Ugh, I feel your pain- literally. I thought that m/s was staring to subside and hadn't puked in three days. then I caught some flu type thing and went to puking 10 times a day. I have had it for more than a week. And, I have been coughing so hard that I broke a freaking rib. I thought that it was hard to sleep with just the flu but this rib thing is forcing me to sleep sitting upright on the couch...thats restful. fortunately i am feeling a little better today in terms of the flu- I even ate lunch. Dry toast anyone?

Hope you feel better soon...

ugh!! I hate that other mamas are sick, too. So unfair.

I'm miserable- I had to leave work early. I picked up my prescriptions and took the 1st dose of each. I took Tylenol, but it really hasn't helped. I can barely hear out of the left side. It's so painful.

Add me to the list. It's one thing after another. This is the worst pregnancy EVER. First it was pneumonia for 5 weeks (neshmamama - have you been to the doc? I bruised a rib from coughing fits too. Maybe it's more than a flu?). During that time I also pulled my achilles ankle from being in slippers up and down stairs. Bruised a rib from coughing. Had my whole ribcage seize up (ugh). Then pink eye. Next a nasty sinus infection. Now I"m having crazy sinus headaches. Sprinkled in are nausea and exhaustion. Hard to know if it's from the illness or from the pregnancy. Oh. And I just got my labs back and now I'm on an antibiotic for a UTI that I didn't know I had!!

If my other two pregnancies had been like this I would never have even considered going through this again!

So sorry mama!! I'm in the same boat. Sick for three+ weeks straight. First the flu, then a stomach bug, then a bad sinus infection and now I can't pee. Yeah, I spent the entire day in the ER (second time) and am now home with a foley catheter in my bladder. Apparently this is going to keep happening at least until later in the pregnancy when my uterus gets bigger. This has been such a crappy pregnancy. I had horrible morning sickness since the very beginning and its still here. I still vomit at least once a day. I hope we all get to enjoy being pregnant soon!!!!!!!!!!!!!
