I am writing this because I am experiencing it right now. I can’t sleep.
I’ve been struck by a cough and cold virus. And I was told by my OB not to take any meds. Even those that I take before I got pregnant.
I wrote about what she told me to do a few posts back.
But my then condition has worsen.
It’s already 5:13 am on my computer clock and I’m still wide awake.
Why, because of my pestering cough, I keep on waking up every hour since I went to bed at 1230 last night.
I called up my hubby who is in HK and told him about my situation. He told me to make myself a warm calamansi juice to soothe my throat. It’s because when I cough, it’s like my whole chest will explode. That’s how worse it is!
I followed his advice. I stopped coughing. Relieved now. But then, my throat’s still aching from all the coughing since midnight. Oh well, at least I felt a little better.
And one more thing, I can’t sleep lying down totally. I need to stay on an upright position so that my nasal passages will clear through. I am still not sure whether I could sleep in a position like that.
I will tell you that after a night’s sleep in a while.
By the way, I will see my doctor later. I can’t stand the coughing. I am hoping that she might have a remedy for this.
It’s 5:20 guys and girls. Need to catch up on sleep. Wish me luck! :sleeping:
