Allergies during pregnancy

I am dying here with my seasonal allergies. All of a sudden my throat and eyes started itching. Sneezing, runny nose. I am about 9 weeks pregnant and I am not sure if it is safe to take anything for it. Or any other way to relieve the symptoms. Can anyone help?

  • Ask your doctor, I have seasonal allergies too! I have just lived with them till now (I am 24) and I finally just went in and got claritin and nasarel. They seem to be helping, my nose doesn't itch constantly, lol. But to be safe (as I have no idea what is ok for baby) I would call and ask.
