Free Neti Pot
I took advantage of this offer a few weeks ago... I THINK it's still valid. I went through the process (except for actually submitting) to check and it worked for me.
I had heard of Neti Pots and had been tempted to pick one up and try it. But I'm not big on spending money on something until I know for sure if it works! A totally free offer (free shipping too!) was fabulous!
Our whole family has a cold this week. This may be the weirdest pregnancy symptom anyone has ever complained about, but when I am pregnant, I seem to produce snot by the bucket load. That's wonderful information to share with the world, isn't it? ;) I think its a sign that I am getting old that I have no problem sharing this with everyone....
Anyway, when you add the fact that I am very limited in what medicines I can take to the Niagara Falls that is my nose whenever I have a cold while pregnant, I was all too ready to try this Neti Pot. Its drug free and basically just flushes out the sinus cavity with a saline solution. Some people with allergies use a Neti Pot regularly to help with their symptoms.
Using the Neti Pot felt weird. Not painful but weird. When I was done, I wondered if this was a bad idea because I was left with that somewhat uncomfortable feeling that you have after swimming under water if you didn't plug your nose. But after about 30 to 45 minutes, I realized that annoying sensation was gone and my sinuses were totally clear. I was breathing totally free of congestion and my nose was not running.
I am officially a fan of the Neti Pot! Just had to share.... =)
