I used to get really bad sinus until a few years ago... I am now 15 weeks pregnant and I am getting it really bad again. I am snoring when I sleep and then because of the pressure i am waking up with massive headaches that make me vomit... Is there anything I can take or anything i can do???

You can take Zurtec while pregnant.
I suffer as well & took it the entire pregnancy with my first & again now with no 2.
There is nothing worse! Hope you get some relief!

I always suffer with sinusitis when pregnant too and everytime I have sought relief I am only ever told to have saline drops in the nose and/or a eucalyptus nasal spray as being the only thing safe to take.
I put on my vapourisor, as I find if the air is too dry my nose becomes worse and then I get the throbbing head and neuralgia. I take paracetemol for the headaches and try and massage my sinus' in the shower to try and drain some of the mucous etc.
Another thing I have found beneficial in pregnancy for sinus is accupuncture on the sinus' too.

In terms of what medication you can safely take would ring medicineline and ask them directly what you can and can't have. As like I said earlier, I have only ever been given saline drops which hardly do a thing really.
