I know a stuffy nose is par for the course for most women during pregnancy - and with this weather/seasonal crap lately, it can't be helping ..

But I've had a stuffy nose for 18 weeks now! lol Yes, the entire pregnancy!! AGH! I'm about to go crazy. I feel like I can't breathe or like I'm always gasping for air. I hate breathing through my mouth, I think it's gross and it makes my throat hurt. But since I'm on BP meds because of high BP already, the dr doesn't want me taking anything to help clear it up. Only saline spray. Which doesn't help. I get some relief in the shower when all the steam is going directly up my nose but otherwise, nada. I feel like I need to keep a handheld steamer blowing up my nose at all times

Ok, I just really needed to whine about that it's been bugging me forever and I really, really hope it doesn't continue through the entire pregnancy!!

Have you tried a neti pot? My husband has really bad sinus issues and swears by it. I can't seem to do it right, but I heard it provides a lot of pregnant women with sinus infections and colds.

I've seen those but I've never tried it! I may have to search around and see if I can't find one, though!

Ick Jess! I hope you get relief soon
