Hi, I just found out I am pregnant, and it was the sniffer that tipped me off last week. I got super congested and runny / clogged (depending on the hour), yet I could still smell things 80 miles away too.

Straight saline doesn’t get you addicted, it’s the steroid sprays that you should be cautious about. But I feel your pain. Even before company decided to set up shop in my uterus, I’ve been an avid neti pot user. Try that– you can go straight to the local drug store and pick one up immediately. Also, sleep with a humidifier on at night. I don’t know about you, but my nasal passages get so inflamed and raw when I’m trying to sleep that it hurts. I’ve been blowing out a little bit of blood (sorry for the TMI) too, so it’s definitely helped with that.

Sorry about your nose. If I had the perfect solution, I’d give it to you, but sadly we’re in the same boat. Are you feeling nauseas too, or no? I get pangs of that, but I haven’t vomited at all. I think I’ve been lucky.

Lol.  I’ve never experienced this particular symptom, but I just want to say good luck and feel better soon!  It is possible that you’re just coming down with a cold.  …not sure if this is better or worse than pregnancy rhinitis.  Pregnancy can do the craziest things to your body.

I second getting a humidifier – you can get cheap ones to try and see if it works.  We just have a little one from Walgreens.  I also recommend an air purifier – it’s helped my pregnancy allergies tremendously.

I felt the same way about the neti pot at first, but I had a friend that was so avid about it, and I was so miserable from chronic sinus infections that I was desperate to try anything. Lo and behold, I totally love it.

How far along are you? I think my last period was in October, so I’m going to guess for me it’s been 6 weeks nearly, but since I’m being tasked with thinking about it, I can not remember for the life of me. I’ve been exhausted for the past 3 weeks almost, so I wasn’t surprised when the tests (all 5 of them) were positive.
