If it's pollen, I've had great success with eating local honey.

I hit my farmers market last weekend, and found a honey that's made just a few miles away from my house, so I bought a giant tub of that!
I second wenat's suggestion of eating local honey. I've heard of many being *cured* of their allergies for the Season with that method.

Good Luck hope you feel better soon!

Oh yeah, I've also read that allergies can be a little worse in pregnancy especially congestion.....that may mean you'll have to ride this one out

Botulism would only be if baby swallowed the honey directly. An adult tummy would normally kill off any spores.
Nettle is safe and nourishing while pregnant and breastfeeding. I use a combo of freeze dried capsules and tea (it is good mixed with red raspberry leaf - also good for preg and bfing). There are also tinctures available.

Good luck!
