  • Unfortunately, for me, the stuffy nose and headaches are a daily occurrence. I have had a stuffy nose every morning for the past five months. I wouldn't be concerned about the stuffy nose, but you might want to run the headaches past your doctor. You might have a sinus infection...or it could just be hormone-related. Hope you feel better soon.

  • Pregnancy can cause mucus membranes to go haywire. I was congested most of my pregnancy. My Doc said I could take an antihistimine but I was always congested and I wasn't going to take in for the duration of my pregnancy.

  • You can use saline nasal spray... I have some and it's been my lifesaver so far... or if you've ever heard of Neti pots (Google them) those are good too... drug free and perfectly safe for us preggo ladies to use!
