    i was really bummed out to find out this is super common and will stop the minute the baby is out of you.  I have horrible allergies, and my nose is running overtime! so annoying.  All i can recommen is saline gel to coat your nose with to prevent nose bleeds from over blowing

    My nose didn’t run but I was plugged up a little from pretty early on. I started to have to sleep with my mouth open, which isn’t fun since then you have dry mouth all night. It’s not as bad now at 7 months as it was for the first two trimesters, it happens about 3/4 of the time now. However, I have also been super thirsty, mouth-breathing aside, my whole pregnancy so I wake up a lot at night to pee, and then I have to drink some more water to slake my thirst…and then pee again. Vicious cycle 😉

    Several times during my pregnancy, starting almost a week before I even tested, I would have these sneezing fits…sneezing literally every 2-3 minutes, for HOURS and HOURS. And my nose would not stop running…seriously like a freaking faucet, so gross. They stopped happening sometime around the beginning of the second trimester, thank god. 

    Don’t have any advice…I was cleared to take Claritin, but only once I hit the second trimester. A ton of people swear by Neti pots, but I’m apparently incapable of properly using one, so they never helped me. 

    Pregnant bodies do really weird things. Hopefully it’s just an allergy thing and will pass for you quickly. Congratulations and good luck!
