Anyone have an experience during their first trimester with post nasal drip? I am miserable. The mucous is so thick that it keeps making me gag and almost vomit. I desperately want to take Mucinex but it's not on my doctor's approved list. I want to try to avoid meds but I don't know if I'll get any sleep tonight without something. Sudafed definitely changes my blood pressure/heartbeat so that's out. I took one dose of that and realized it wasn't the best idea. I was thinking benadryl might help and it seems like a lot of people online have said they've taken that in their first trimester. I know those neti pots are supposed to be helpful but I don't do well with those.
Any suggestions or reassurances? This is such a miserable cold. Not to mention the havoc it is playing on my stomach.
