Ugh, I thought I could go a whole 9 months without getting sick.
I started feeling really worn down on Thursday but I thought it was just from a busy week at work planning a huge annual event...guess not.
I have pretty much been asleep all weekend and last night my throat started getting really sore. Throughout the night it got worse and by this morning I could hardly swallow.
We went to the local clinic this morning and the Dr informed me I have strep. He called in a prescription for me and said it was safe to take while pregnant. Of course I wasn't going to take his word alone. I went home, called my RE's nurse on-call and while I waited for her to call me back I got online and searched for everything strep and pregnancy related. The nurse said the antibiotic I was going to take was fine and that it would be worse for the baby if I didn't treat the strep.
It makes me nervous to take anything while I'm pregnant but it sounds like this is for the best.
