    I am getting really mad. My doctor seems not to care. I have been telling him I am not feeling good. He say well it is your first pregnancy so your body is getting use to it. Than he gets on to me cause I do not get the flu shot. He scared me saying I could kill my baby and myself if I don't get it. Once again I am sick with a cold or something. I have been getting sick ever since I started false labor. I am trying home remidies for my cold or what ever. But I need help in what I can do more to get me feeling better. My child is coming in 13 weeks so I need to get things done. My symptons are sore throat, headaches, really tired, babrley eating, I sleep almost 12hrs if not longer, now my throat is like clogged up. I do not know what to do. I do not want to hurt my unborn child, but if I do not get help I am afraid something will happen.

    I had a horrible cold the first week in December and again last week. I have been pumping myself with Vitamin C from oranges and other citrus.

    I started feeling better after 5 days.

    See I drink only apple juice and orange juice. My pre natal has a lot of Vitamin C. I am thinking my husband has something but I cannot figure what he has.

    We also eat fresh hot peppers with our supper. My husband seems to think that is why we both recover so quickly.

    We both had something at the same time (we didnt have peppers one week). We started eating peppers this week and we both cleared up sooner than our sick friends.
