Getting sick is never any fun, but it’s even worse when you’re pregnant. While it may be inconvenient and annoying, can a cold actually hurt your unborn baby?
You might actually notice that you have more colds and illnesses now that you are pregnant. That is completely normal. It is due to the fact that your immune system is changing to protect your baby more than you. Unfortunately, while your baby is being “extra protected”, mom can sometimes be more susceptible to illnesses.
