The last week or so I've been having a lot of trouble sleeping, waking often, shortness of breath, tightness in my chest, congestion, and lots of coughing. DH finally told me this morning that the reason he keeps moving to the couch in the middle of the night is that I've been coughing all night and waking him up. The thing is that I'm coughing in my sleep. I woke up last night when he told me he was moving to the living room, and apparently I had just been coughing a minute before, but I was sound asleep.
What's going on? Is this some new manifestation of my seasonal allergies?
I also seem to be having occasional apnic episodes, when I've never had apnea before. Is this somehow related to the pregnancy or the coughing?
I really don't know what to do about it. I've been considering taking Loratadine, which is the only antihistamine I've had luck with in the past (most of them put me to sleep), but asked the pharmacist today and he said that no antihistamine is recommended during pregnancy. So I'm stumped as to what's going on and what I should do here...
