A week later, I’m still sick. I dragged myself to the doctor yesterday. I have a sinus infection and bronchitis. Neither one came as a surprise. I’ve had a smoker’s lung since I was 12. I smoked my first whatever when I was 23ish. Nothing I inhale. And certainly not often. But alas, chronic bronchitis is my life.
I’m on an antibiotic for the infection. So far, nothing for the cough. Anything that helps coughs is category c for pregnancy, which means it’s not a great idea. Though, like mental health, it is risk verses benefit in that category. If my cough gets bad enough, he wants me to go ahead and take some mucinex. So we’ll see.
Speaking of meds and pregnancy. I did see my meds doctor last Wednesday. We both agree that remaining meds free is the goal of this pregnancy. However, if depression becomes a problem, she will see about getting me on Zoloft. It’s the safest option out there. So we do have a plan B. Which is good.
And then of course, we will start the process of getting me back on everything once the baby is born. But we all knew that.
Anyway, there you have it. A couple of updates.
Now excuse me while I go cough up a lung.
