{Cough Cough Go Away}

I think my body must be worn out. I have had a horrible cough for the last 2 weeks. It is the kind of cough where you double over and hack it out for 15 minutes. I have a spell about once an hour.

Supposedly coughing isn't dangerous to our minuscule baby, but it aint fun. We had it checked out and it isn't pneumonia, so I guess I'm okay. No medicine for me though, except some throat lozenges and Tylenol. The head cold isn't helping either.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I will feel better before pregnant ickiness (i.e. puking) sets in.

My friend told me of this wives' tale type cure that apparently cures coughing:
Put Vicks Vapor Rub on the soles of your feet and then put socks on. Apparently she does it for her daughter to relieve her cough...

I haven't tried it but I'm curious (and hopeful) if it really works!

Maybe you will never get pukey- I will hope for you that you will be one of those women I hate who feels even better prego.

My cure that ALWAYS works, hot water, fresh squirts of lemon juice, and honey. Sip on that and it will soothe your throat and minimize the coughing.

I'm sorry you've been feeling sick. At least it's not something that will hurt Baby.

I also hope for you, like Taryn, that you never get pukey. I'm not even preggo and I've been pukey for 3 weeks now and it SUX! I would not wish it on anyone....

Lindsey...I have had the same cough for the same time frame. We must have the same bug. It's a dreaded, uncontrollable cough that leaves me hunched over in pain. I hope it goes away soon for you. Feel better...
