  • Try calling your OB/GYN office and asking them. They are your BEST resource for pregnancy questions, especially when dealing with OTC medications because the guidelines change all the time.

  • take a tablespoon or local raw honey everyday. if your not allergic. it's better then any OTC. i personally don't trust any meds when i'm not pregnant so i really don't trust them with a unborn child.

  • I would ask your doctor. I'm not sure there's anything you can take. Maybe use saline nasal spray. Good luck.

  • Local honey is great! I wish my local resource hadn't moved. Gotta find a new one.

  • I know on my list of OTC medicine, i could take Benadryl. But each doctor is different so I would ask your doctor.

  • I'm sure about any medications, but I would try a cool mist humidifier at night and try using a netipot too (these are for more long term effects). I would call your OB/GYN to ask them for something that would give immediate relief.

  • Nasal spray is the only thing I was allowed. And not even a whole spray. Like 2 drops.
