  • it's called pregnancy rhinitis and it does suck to say the least. your body is producing more estrogen which causes more mucus production

  • Yup. I also had problems with my gums being really sensitive and bleeding every time I brushed despite the fact that I have good oral hygiene.

  • I think I have had every symptom so far except hemmorhoids(knock on wood) the sinus congestion has been just neverending and it is def from the pregnancy....what my body has done all on its own that is so "textbook" for the pregnancy has truly amazed me and has given me a whole new respect for mother nature! our bodies are amazing things! horrible sinus congestion, acne appearing out of no where, swollen feet and all!
