Ugh, I think I have it. I have spent every day for the past few weeks sneezing/hacking/coughing. I thought it was a cold, then I thought it was allergies, now I think it's pregnancy rhinitis. Please put me out of my misery.
I'm definitely not as miserable as you, but I have been getting sinus headaches, and am stuffy all the time. A hot shower or warm bath always helps me :)
I've been sniffy the whoooole pregnancy. Moved into getting headaches in the last week or so. Ain't it fun? :)
I've been congested for a while now. But the worst are the headaches and pressure. I've had one since Saturday morning and can't get rid of it!
I've got it. I had pregnancy rhinitis with DS too, and it lasted the whole 9 months. Within a day of him being born it was gone. I think it'll be the same again, I won't loose the congestion until this baby is in my arms. When it is really bad and I feel I can't breathe when I go to bed I use the breathe right nasal strips. They work so well I want to keep them on all the time, but you're not supposed to have them on for more than about 12 hours if I remember correctly. I also have some Olbas Oil from back home in the UK which works really well. Its like a menthol type essential oil. A few drops on my pillow or a tissue really helps me feel clearer.
I have it, too. Stuffy nose, sinus pressure/headache. I'm hoping it'll get better once it warms up, it's so cold and dry here right now.
Count me in the club. I've had it with my last two the entire time too. My sinuses are so bad, every step I take is painful. It feels like my teeth are rattling in my jaw. Sucks!
With my last it started right away, but not this time so I was hoping to escape it... Just this weekend I started feeling very stuffy and feel like I have a constant sinus headache, I don't feel sick at all so I think this is a later onset then last time. Not fun. I am sort of hoping the symptoms will lighten a bit as the weather gets nicer and the heat is not on so much so the air wont be as dry, but I wont hold my breath.
You sound miserable, I hope your symptoms lighten a bit.
Hmm, I am wondering now. I have been sort of sniffly for weeks and weeks but just blamed it on the cold and dry weather. Plus our house is pretty dusty
I've been using the neti pot for a couple days now, but it only brings relief for about an hour afterwards, then I'm back to suffering again. This is the pits! I guess my concern is that if you are in pain everyday, couldn't it be a sinus infection rather than just pregnancy sinus stuff?
I woke up this morning with my tongue hurting! It must be from mouth breathing all night long. This really stinks
