Ugh, I think I have it. sneeze.gif 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. surrender.gif

 

Anyone else?

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 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 Sheepish.gif

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?

Thankfully it doesn't have that infection smell. It's just annoying. My mom suggested I put Vicks VapoRub on my feet at night. I thought it was a silly idea, but tried it anyway. You know, yesterday I woke up fine. redface.gif I didn't do it last night and woke with sneezing and a headache. I think I'll try it again tonight.

I used to get this too with my first three. I thought it was just a permanent symptom of pregnancy. But now that I take enough vitamin d, this pregnancy I have not had one moment of congestion, runny or stuffy nose, nothing, I went last Sept to get my vitamin d tested, it was too low, upped my daily dose of d, waited 2 months, got tested again it was still lower then optimum, and raised my dosage again. Everyone's ideal dose is individual -- you want to have more than 60 in your bloodstream on the blood test and it could take 1000s of units of vitamin d supplements to get to 60. But that's the level where it prevents colds, viruses, flus, etc. So talk to your docs or up your d levels. Maybe it works.
