I have never had allergies or allergy symptoms before, and of course I most likely took this for granted. So when I woke up 2 weeks ago with the itchiest skin, red scratchy uncontrollably itchy eyes, swollen throbbing sinuses, dry scratchy swollen throat, piercing ear pain, a throbbing headache, a colossal amount of mucus (or as we simply call it in this house ‘boogers’), and a sexy male voice. I had no one to curse at other then myself. I kept telling myself it was just a cold, but after it didn’t go away and it kept getting worse then better, then worse, then better, then..worse, I decided to listen to my husband, doctor and co workers and agree, I had allergies.
So I have swallowed my pride and my values and taken the allergy medicine recommenced by my Dr and Pharmacist. I normally hate to take anything, pregnant or not, but being pregnant I dislike taking anything that isn’t 100% natural. It took me a few days, ok maybe a week or more, until I finally decided the lesser evil was to take the medicine so I could function just enough to paly with my son, and take care of my house, and possibly get at least an hour sleep at night.
I have also come to the conclusion that once this baby comes out my allergies will probably seize and desist. Babies, they sure know how to run our lives even before they are born. 😉
PS. always a good piece of advice, never google symptoms, it will only send you on the road to stress and worry. But I did find this article a little helpful.
