I was never sick once during my pregnancy with my daughter, now with this baby it seems like I am constantly battling sinus congestion!!! I hate it so much because it makes it very hard to get any sleep at night. Here I am again up at 3am and cannot sleep because I just can't breath when I am laying down.
I know what you mean! I was up the other night until 2am because I couldn't breathe. I went to the MD yesterday just for my regular appt and I asked her if I can take anything. She told me I can take regular Robitussin or regular Sudafed (which is for nasal congestion). so right after my appt I went to Walgreens. I couldn't take another night of no sleep.
Yes! I've never been sick this pregnancy, just my nose. Congestion at night and sneezing all day. So I have been using a higher pillow at night and it seems to help quite a bit, although my DH says I still snore more now and breath way more heavier. But at least I can sleep.

Thank you Meganpixel for the most fantastic siggy!
Yeah, that is the number one pregnancy complaint that I have been whining to everyone about. It keeps me up to all hours of the night and even when I do sleep (with my mouth open), I then wake up several times a night because of nasty, smelly dry mouth.
I asked my doctor this week at my check-up and he said the same thing - said Sudafed is fine for me to take or Claritin-D. Can't say I want to take something every day (unlike Sudafed, allergy medicines like Claritin takes time to build in your system before they're really effective) but I may give Sudafed a try, at least on days where I feel particularly stuffy.
I should own stock in tissues and toilet paper by now. THAT would have been a good pre-pregnancy investment.
Oh I know what you mean, I have went through a whole box of puffs plus in the last 2 days... ack!! I think I may try propping my pillow up at night like Laura suggested. It gets so bad when I lay down flat..
