stuffed up?? Congested? Sneezing all the time??? I have been like this for the last 3 weeks. It last all day and night. I read about it online and it can happen to 20-30% of women in pregnancy. I am miserable. I have taken allergy meds, use a humidifier, slept with my head elevated. I asked the doctor about it when I went. She told me to go to an ENT. I have to go to my regular doctor first and then will make an appointment. It will last until you give birth. UGH....I hate to complain, but this sucks!!

I have used the neti pot when I can. Most of the time I am so stuffed up that the solution will not flow through my nose and runs down my throat! Claritin and Benadryl are safe to use. I have tired and both and they give a little relief.
