Let me explain. For the last few days I've had a runny nose, and I've been sneezing like crazy - every few hours I have a sneezing fit and then fine for a while. A little congestion but not much, as long as I keep blowing my nose I can breathe just fine.

I know congestion is a pregnancy symptom, and I'm 6w3d right now. But, I never had any issues with congestion with DS, so I'm not sure if this is pregnancy congestion or sick congestion. I wouldn't worry too much about it except that I plan to see a friend this week whose kids are very susceptible to getting sick and anything they pick up, they get VERY sick with, so I don't want to give them anything, you know?

I don't have allergies, either, and it's the wrong time of year for them anyway. So what would you do? Assume it's just pregnancy since I feel just fine except for the occasional sneezing and runny nose, or err on the safe side and cancel my plans with my friend to get our kids together?
