Yet nine months is not a short time. And even though we all know that it is bad to be ill, and pregnant even more so, still not everyone manages to go all the way without catching the so-called cold. If in the medical language, then ORVI or ORZ.
In the first pregnancy, at week 21, I managed to catch a cold somewhere. And maybe catch a virus. Scared, I remember, scary. I called the doctor, who was registered, and she is a strict and very disciplined woman. Of course, she said, call the district doctor.
Since I, fortunately, did not have a high temperature, I went to the therapist on my own. First of all, having found out from me that I work, I was, of course, offered a sick-list.
Although, those symptoms of a cold for a non-pregnant person did not suit the hospital in any way: a sore throat, a bit snotty nose, weakness and a slight fever.
But we, the pregnant people are special and the attitude towards us is also special. And this could not but rejoice. In general, they say any disease in pregnant women is dangerous because no one knows how everything goes. Therefore, letting it go by itself is absolutely forbidden!
As for the treatment, here I was a little sad. To be honest, pregnant women especially do not recommend any drugs. And the doctor, even a little confused, began to turn over some benefits, remembering what I can prescribe.
As a result, we stopped at several preparations, the instructions of which stipulated that it is possible for pregnant women!
Having come home, I decided to study a little the issue of treating a cold during pregnancy on the Internet. And she made some simple and good rules for herself.
Drink plenty of water. Many cushy. Good compotes from dried fruits, not necessarily raspberries and lemons, wild rose and herbs. Nevertheless, a pregnant organism is a bit unpredictable, and even if there were no allergies to some products, then it can manifest itself during pregnancy.
But, if, of course, there is one hundred percent certainty that you can eat lemon with benefit, then it is for health.
Helping spout. The safest is washing. Now there are lots of drugs in pharmacies, with convenient sprays and droppers to wash the nose. This will help clear the nasal passages and drive bacteria.
By the way, if you think that these drugs are unnecessarily expensive, then you can buy a penny saline and a pipette.
Many doctors prescribe Pinosol drops. But again, they are on the grass, so you should use them very carefully. And one of my friend the pharmacist said that you can use those droplets that are prescribed to infants.
And of course, wet cleaning and fresh air. Of course, it is desirable that someone from the household does the cleaning, but more often it is necessary to air the room.
Medical consultation – is required!
I specifically do not want to touch on the topic of pharmaceutical preparations and I want to remind you that a doctor should prescribe treatment for pregnant women. And in any case, doctors should not be avoided.
But plenty of drinking, vitamins, diet and rest – it has not stopped anyone in the fight against colds.
Do not get sick and stay healthy!
