    Default Nasal Congestion

    Was just wondering if anyone knows how long the nasal congestion lasts? Is it a second trimester thing only or will I be stuck with this stuffy, snotty, bloody nose until bubby makes his/her appearance? Had it for almost two months now, have to say its somewhat irritating!

    I am not sure how long it lasts, also hoping it ends soon!
    I went to the chemist yesterday and now that I am 18 weeks they said I could start using a decongestant. I also have the kids steamer thingie in my room at night.
    I also get hay fever, so have polaramine tablets for when I need them.

    I hope it ends for you soon

    Im 36 weeks pregnant and I'm afraid it doesn't go away. I still wake up every morning with nasal congestion/bloody nose. I must say it has cleared up a little since the 2nd trimester though. I use to sit up in bed and have terrible blood noses. Not the nicest thing but it's just one of those lovely pregnancy symptoms 😄

    I've found it fluctuates throughout the weeks. At the moment I'm 37 weeks, it seems quite bad, but that could be because its so cold too! My sinuses actually ache & I find I have to breathe with my mouth most of the time. I have a low bridge nose which apparently makes it worse My midwife also said there's nothing you can really do because antihistamines aren't safe in pregnancy

    Your midwife said antihistamine's not safe? I might check again then cause the pharmacist and dr said they were, but not in the beginning.

    At least this is better than the morning sickness!
