  • I've been stuffy this entire pregnancy and nothing seems to help. I've like you tried everything. The only thing that take the edge off is a neti pot and a benedryl. B.o.l.

  • I got a humidifier because my throat was getting really dry. The Safety 1st one in the baby dept at Target is awesome. No filters to change, really easy to use, and only cost $30. Best investment I have made. Plus, you can use it when baby gets here.
