Anyone keep cold bug longer when pg?

Just wanted to know if any of you mamas had trouble getting rid of a cold or other bugs when pregnant or even before the bean was confirmed with hpts?

I am having a hard time getting rid of my cold-going on 2weeks now!! I am at the end of my 2week wait before af is due!!! My bbs are soar,feel yucky(queezy),peeing a lot already and just feel pg again! I od (or had fertile ewcm from Sept18th-21st,bd 2 times during this time!) So we'll see what happens! I usually poas when af is 1-2(sometimes3weeks late!) because I HATE BFNS and want to be sure i am late! I THINK I remember not being able to get rid of colds when pg with DD Sarah-but it was over 2 years ago and you sort of forget,kwim? Is it wishful feelings or possibly a early pregnancy?

I had a horrible cold from 8-10 weeks, then it came back and I had it weeks 12-14. My doctor said it was normal to have a lower immune system when pregnant. I also think I have Rhinitis of pregnancy, which is like an everyday cold. I wake up everyday with a stuffy nose and congestion and normal just sneeze all day long.

I think its def. possible. I normally have colds for about 3 weeks and when I'm pg I just can never shake them. like pp said, wake up congested, etc. and stays that way on/off all day. Have you tried some benedryl at night?

you can check out motherisk.com if you are concerned about diff. meds. also, the HG site another mom posted a few days ago has a great list of meds www.helpher.org That way you don't have to just take my word for it! My DH has colds for about a day or two, gives me and ds the same cold and we fight it for 3 weeks!
