I wish I hadn't googled it now but my lo still isn't well and has this horrible cough and I started to worry about whooping cough and he has all the early stage symptoms which have lasted over a week. .. and now has been left with a nasty cough that doesn't seem to be getting any better. . And he makes a funny noise not exactly a whoop but similar when he is having a coughing fit. .. got myself all Worried now. ..bloody google!
