Anybody else suffering?
Here in the deep south the pollen is coating everything!! My white truck looks yellow! Its so gross. And my allergies are in full force right now. I'm taking zyrtec, and maybe its helping?! And I know Afrin is a no-no (not for baby, just in general), but its totally my BFF right now. Only way I can breath!!!

Other allergy sufferers, what are you doing?

Yep! Pollen count was close to 10,000 yesterday in Atlanta (anything over 120 is considered very high, if I'm not mistaken). I've had a low grade headache for three days, but my older DD is miserable. We had a nice storm last night, so I'm hoping we'll have a little relief. We've been staying inside as much as possible.

You know I'm not far from you in GA, just a little south, and YES, the pollen is ridiculous. I can't go outside without sneezing and itching like crazy. I feel like I need a shower if I even walk outside for a second. I've been having a sinus headache for days. Ugh...

Ha, ha I have to laugh! All of us are from Georgia! Guess it really is something in the air around here, huh?!
I though the rain might help mine, but so far I think its worse.

My allergies are awful right now. I use Claritin, Flonase, and Afrin. I feel congested almost all the time. Sucks.

Allergies are worse and earlier this year because tress never stopped producing pollen in the Winter. I was told by my doctor that I'm allowed to take Benedryl, but it knocks me out so I'm too afraid of what it'll do to the baby. Right now, I just suffer.

I am allergic to shedding horses, well you know what horses are doing by the handfuls right now! LOL........ Needless to say I have been suffering the past couple weeks. I got a TON of hair off my stud yesterday and I am sure I will get just as much this evening. I just suffer through it but my dr told me benedryl is fine to take.

VA is pretty bad to, but must admit when I lived in GA it was heck a bad! Pollen counts are going to be at the highest ever this year since winter was a bust and everything bloomed earlier. Anyhow Zertec 10mg, cool mist humidifier, and benedryl.

Mine are KILLING me. I work where I see OB docs a couple times a week so I asked if I could take Zyrtec. I was given the go-ahead. It's been a life saver.

I'm dying over here! I take Claritin D because I need the decongestant. I normally take precription strength Allegra D but it's not approved so this will have to do. It helps with the sneezing and congestion but the headaches are the worst. I have a bad one today and nothing is helping. It's raining right now and I hope once it stops I'll have some relief. I have to go to a 2 year old bday party today

I think you might be right. We've had a lot of rain the last couple of days and my headache is as bad as ever.
