This is normally the time of year I'd start taking Allegra. I've been getting a LOT of migraines lately and I'm noticing that I'm stuffed up. Last time I was pregnant I mostly missed allergy season, so I have no coping strategies.
Does anyone have any ideas? Natural remedies, herbs, supplements, etc. I'm debating taking some Benadryl at night to see if it helps, but I'd rather wait until I'm through the 1st trimester to take anything besides Tylenol.
I just started doing a Neti-Pot sometimes, as an alternative to taking meds, and while I'm not sure it makes much difference for me, a lot of people are really into it. Also it's kinda fun.

I have been using the Neti-Pot for about five weeks right now. I still am having issues, but I think it is helping as I really think it would be worse.

I don't have any allergy advice but for migraines I use pepperment essential oil and it is really helpful. You can place a drop a bit on a warm wet wash cloth and move it around so it is all over the cloth then place the cloth over your face while laying down. I also put a drop on my upper lip so it goes right up my nose. Just put a little or it burns really bad. If the migraine is really bad you can place ice under the base of your neck while laying with the rag on your face. Unfortunately I don't know any natural remedies that allow you to keep moving but I can get it to pass in 1 hr or less which is way good for me.
