<p>I am nearly 16 weeks pg with #2 and have had a sinus infection and/or productive chesty cough for almost the whole time so far.  Just this morning it morphed into a serious sinus congestion/cold thing that is driving me crazy.  I am up all night trying to breathe or cough or blow my nose and I just want to feel better for a change!  Can anyone recommend any good remedies (other than the Neti pot, I already do that daily) to clear my head and chest?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Thanks!</p>

<p>I was newly preggo last Feb right during my usual sinus infection period.  Along with the netti pot, I megadosed my vit C intake - 1000mg every hr.  Also a nice heafty garlic supplement helped.  I would normally combine with Sambucol but I read a few inconclusive studies on the black elderberrry being a potential issue in pregnancy so I didn't want to chance it.  To get real good drainage, I've always had luck with chiropractic.  It's almost instant when I get an adjustment, I can feel the pressure dissipate.</p>
