I'm trying not to be over-alarmist, but DD came down with a cough last Thurs. (pretty wet sounding, worse at night) and it has gotten progressively worse over the past few days. Now my husband and I are both coughing.
I wouldn't be that concerned, except fo the fact that I'm 37 weeks pregnant and I've read that the contagious period of WC can last until coughing subsides (which in the case of whooping cough can be months).
What do I do for the new baby? The coughing hasn't been confirmed as whopping cough yet, mainly 'cause I don't want to take her to the ped. who will just get on our case AGAIN for not vaxing her. I don't want to hear "I told you so."
I'm just getting really worried. Coudl this just be a regular cold? She has no other symptoms, except for a slight, clear runny nose. Anyone else experienced this?
