im in the same exact boat as you! horrible allergies, made worse by pregnancy congestion.  i’m now 24weeks and am starting to have trouble breathing 🙁  try light running or walking uphill on a treadmill. you’re still going to get winded, but you should be able to step off the treadmill easily enough to take a breath when needed.  Also – try saline gel (find it on amazon) for the nose bleeds – helps lubricate!

I don’t live near an indoor pool anymore, but I used to live right by one and found that swimming tremendously helped my allergies. Don’t know if it was the chlorine or humid air or what, but it helped!

I ran a hot shower and rested a lot and use a netti pot pretty much every day.  Lifesaver!

I’ve had those same issues (and an additional horrible cough) for almost two months now. I consider my workout going up and down my stairs each day. It certainly gets my heartrate up :-/
