  • No one is immune to colds, not even us pregnant women. Yeah it's fine as long as it doesn't last more than 7 days. I had to get antibiotics bc I kept mine for so long.

  • Sure, anyone can get a cold. Stuffiness can also be a symptom of pregnancy, though it's more common in the later months.

  • Yes, it's normal. Every woman who thinks she might be pregnant instantly gets a head cold.

  • I wouldnt' say that getting a head cold is related to being pregnant...however, your immune system isn't great in early pregnancy due to the new baby......so, yes you can get a head cold while pregnant but you can also get any other type of illness, not necessarily a head cold
