    I had the vicks stick recommended by a pharmacist when I had a cold when preg with DD, told me to use that and "Karvol" which comes in little liquid thingys that you can either put on a hanky or you pillow etc or works great in steam, pretty much same ingredients as the vicks.

    I used (and still do) just regular old saline solution in the nasal spray. Sometimes it takes a bit longer to work it's magic but it's so worth it! No drugs = absolutely NO RISK!

    If you ever have doubts you can contact Mothersafe. They're the leading researchers into safety of pretty much anything in pregnancy.

    Camphor is not safe in pregnancy as it can cause camphor poisoning and cross the placenta. Most decongestants contain it – Vicks, vaporiser solutions etc.
    I would stick with Fess (Saline)
