I was sick this past Sunday/Monday.
I was also 30 weeks pregnant.
Those two things are NOT a good combination.
When you’re pregnant, you can’t take medication (except wussy Tylenol). When you’re breastfeeding, you can’t really take anything, either (except wussy Tylenol).
Since I did the whole back-to-back pregnancy/breastfeeding/pregnancy thingy, that means I have not taken any REAL drugs — like my beloved DayQuil and NyQuil — since the summer of 2009!
And you know what? It is almost the summer of 2012, basically. Wow.
If I breastfeed Baby Girl for as long as I did with the toddler (13 months), then I won’t be able to take DayQuil or NyQuil until late spring of 2013.
I understand that pregnant women don’t often choose to be in drug safety studies, but PLEASE — I am pleading with you, the good people of DayQuil and NyQuil — figure out a way to make a pregnancy- and nursing-friendly version of your lovely product?
I miss you.
