    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    have a sinus infection and broncitis. he said that it is so bad that i would have been in the ER tonight with pneumonia if i hadn't gone on friday.
    got put on an antibiotic that is safe for preggers. i told him i am waiting to POS and he said he would only give me one med instead of the other that he normally would. he said that i would probably have to come back and get more meds but he'd rather see me again than have the alternative and give out not baby safe meds to me.

    i really wish my lungs would feel better. this SUCKS! i had to sleep sitting up last helped alot but now i am sore from sitting up! ha!

    i know it's not monday, but close enough, right?! that's my update!

    Shana, I'm so sorry you're sick...It's good you caught it in time, having pneumonia would not be good, especially if you're pregnant.
    Feel better dear!

    Shana- I hope you feel better quickly. I just got over a sinus infection myself and its horrible. My Dr put me on a 5 day antibiotics and I started feeling better after day 2 so hopefully you will too. She also told me to take claritin D or zantac D.for the 5 days which made a big difference. I skipped a day when I was feeling better and I got all stuffed up again so I took the claritin D again for the rest of the days. Try to get a lot of rest and let everybody else take care of you. When can you take a hpt? KUP
