Maybe it's because I haven't slept in four days, but I'm starting to get angry now. I have a cough and it won't leave me be. I can't sleep, nor can I control my bladder when the coughing starts. I'm 14 weeks pregnant.
Yes, I know all of the "great" advice on what we can take -- paracetamol, steamy baths, etc. -- but that's not helping. I need to sleep, and I have to leave the bathroom eventually. I have a two and a half year old and I have to function as a parent, which I cannot do on days of no sleep and while trying not to wet myself. The "advice" dispensed by the pharmacist has been useless at best -- maybe some people have time to wall themselves up in the bathroom with the hot water on all day long, but I don't.
So what can I do? What can I take? There is nothing so far that has touched this -- no honey/lemon drink, cough sweets, no amount of water drinking, nor sleeping upright in a recliner, NOTHING has worked. I'm miserable, frustrated and in tears. WHAT CAN I DO?
