Colds in the Third Trimester

Posted Nov 04 2008 5:00pm
I'm sick. I have a cold. It sucks. But I am in the third trimester, so it sucks just a little bit less. Unlike earlier trimesters, I don't have to just suffer through. According to the doctor, I am allowed to take Tylenol Cold, Tylenol Sinus, Robitussin, Halls cough drops and Vicks Vapor Rub. I picked up some Tylenol Cold and some Halls. The cough drops help my throat only for the short duration that they are actually in my mouth. The Tylenol makes me cough a bit less. But the action of actually taking something makes me feel better (I'm a sucker for the placebo effect) so I'm better off since I'm farther along.

This week marks the 2-month until c-section date. It seems both very close and very far away. It seems close when I look at how I still have to get the baby stuff put back together and have to get the Monster Baby's new room finished. It seems very far away when I think about how nothing fits and how I can barely walk with the sciatica.
