If the stuffy nose is still really bothering you I have a few suggestions. First is the nasal strips that stick onto the outside of your nose, those were a life saver for me when i was trying to sleep because I hate breathing through my mouth. Also I have heard that a Neti pot works wonders with clearing out your sinuses, I have never tried one, but i will probably get one next time I have issues with sinuses or allergies. You can usually find them in pharmacies. I hope that helps and that you feel better fast.

Ugh, I feel for ya. I had a cold in my second trimester and I think it took a week to go away. Just get lots of rest. It'll take longer if you don't. Get to bed early, take naps, do whatever you can to get in as much sleep as possible.

If you can't find meds to help with the blocked nose and stuff, try going to a chiropractor. (I know it sounds silly). I"m just recovering from a cold, didn't sleep for two nights it was so bad, so yesterday evening I got adjusted and slept really well last night! I feel much better today, but still a little more to heal up.

thanks guys, i went to the doctor and he ordered me to rest unfortunately i got to go back to work tomorrow so i can earn some money lol, but i am feeling a bit better than what i was this time yesterday, how ever still got a damn blocked nose lol and sneezing. i have taken panadol as that what he said if i get a headache that seems to do its job but only for a while.
check for fever and call your doctor.i got a cold it took a few days to go away but you should go in and get it checked out. with the flu going around i wouldnt take chances. ask your doctor what over the counter meds you can take to relieve symptoms.

Hi, I have been in your situation and the best that you can do is just rest and drink lots of fluids, because in being pregnant you can't take anything, when I was about 6 or 7 weeks pregnant I got a cold too and was just miserable and that is all that seemed to help. I hope you get better!
