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.

I hope you feel better.

Try some Mucinex and Sudafed. The Mucinex will thin all that stuff up and help it come out. It's expensive but I've been having to take it a lot lately. It really helps.

Yup I've had 2 sinus infections in the past 2 weeks and finally off my second round of antibotics and now 2 days later I'm starting to feel congested bad again. UGH!

I did have it in the beginning every night when i would lay down for the night. Lately it hasn't been a problem, but I know what you mean.

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..

Ugh, I have the worst congestion and dry cough at night.

I tried Mucinex but it made me feel too foggy-headed. My midwife suggested a Neti pot- it's really weird to get used to but helps a lot.
