Have I ever mentioned how much I HATE sinus infections?
So last Tuesday night, after the ultrascreen, I started to get a sore throat. I didn’t think much of it, thinking I probably was just dehydrated. I went to work on Wednesday and by the time I got home and was ready for bed, my throat was killing me. I could feel like a blockage of mucus in the back of my throat so I knew it was being caused by drainage but my nose wasn’t stuffed up at all. I used my neti pot and hoped I’d feel better in the morning.
Yeah no. That certainly didn’t happen. I spent Thursday – today mainly in bed or on the couch. Symptoms: migranes, sore throat, inflamed sinuses, runny nose, sneezing, ear/face itching/hurting, and coughing.
I ventured out for a brief time to visit family on Sunday due to my mother throwing Nate and I a fantastic wedding celebration. It was nice to see the fam, even though my nose and head were killing me.
As of today, I went to the doctors and found out that I have a secondary sinus infection and an ear infection. The good news? It’s getting better. The bad news? because it’s getting better, I can’t get any medication. Boooooo.
Other than that, my first trimester treated me well as long as I was responsible and scheduled my food times well. Second trimester is here, though honestly I still haven’t really noticed a difference. I would say I’m less tired, but with being sick, I have been exhausted.
Anyways, time for some belly shots!
