Paranoid First-Time Mother or Pneumonia?!

Davie refuses to cough unless she absolutely must.  Therefore, after just one day of nasal congestion and a bit of a cough, it's all in her chest and she has this junky cough and it sounds like she swallowed a rattle.  Her fever hasn't been that high though.  Anyways, I packed us up and went to my parents house.  Good thing too, because she had a really rough night, and I would not have slept at all if my mom and dad hadn't taken the first couple of shifts.  

I want to take her to the doctor so bad, but they said they couldn't give her anything anyways.  

Stevie come back to us!

Gracie has gotten a bad cold like that before. I thought for sure it was settled in her lungs because she sounded so raspy, like an 80 year old smoker. I took her to the dr. and she checked her out and even did the pulsox. on the finger thing and said that there was nothing in her lungs at all, it was all in her head still she just didn't know how to cough to get it all loose. Hopefully that's the case for Davie too. Mine always gets a bad cold right around teething time...could she have a tooth coming too? Hang in is so hard to watch them sick and not be able to help.

I'm so sorry your little Davie is sick!! Too much time with sickly cousins. Just so you have an idea of what she might be feeling, I have the same cold :) Lots of sinus congestion, sore throat, lots of congestion in my throat that SOUNDS like I'm coughing from my chest - but it is all in my throat. Achy all over and little appetite. Generally YUCKY!!! It sounds like you are doing all the right things. You're such a good Mommy!!! Hang in there.

Melinda - I actually though she was teething first before I thought she was sick. She is almost 19 weeks, so teeth will be coming any time now I would think.

Granna - I'm sorry YOUR sick. She was achy yesterday. She cried anytime you moved her. So sad! She's doing better today though. Hallelu!
