I either have sinus or upper respiratory infection it's been going on a week. I ended up taking it last night just so I can sleep. I couldn't really find any info on it effecting pregnancy

My rule of thumb is to avoid meds in the first trimester if possible.  It is common to become stuffy in pregnancy, so be aware if this doesn't go away.

Ah, ok.  I didn't see the PAST part.  We started getting a cold (ears, nose, throat and chest) a couple weeks ago so I loaded us all up on elderberry syrup, a drink similar to Emergen-c, and garlic pills.  By the next day we only had 'left over' mucus.  You know, like when you're done being sick and your body is just getting rid of that extra crap?
