    i permanantly sound like im coming down with cold!! i wake up in the morning all bunged up and have to blow blow blow my nose then 2 mins later its full again, mainly only on the left nostril / sinus side! yuk!! its soo congested that its blocking my ear and i get terrible pressure in it like it needs to pop! its been like this weeks now but hasnt turned into a cold or anything, started when i started getting terrible nose bleeds.. they have calmed down and left me with this rubbish.. its all bloody though when i blow (sorry if tmi!) just wondered if anyone else had it as i remember in first tri people said congestion or cold like symptoms are preg side effects? on a night i can sometimes feel really crap like im coming down with a cold but then in the morning im just really congested.

    LMAO you really shud have just come to me LOL
    i have same problem, like a constant head cold you cant shake off??

    Can have a few days or a week of releif
    then the sniffles start , then stuffy nose and once nose starts
    My ears go mental
    Think mine is trigged by my ears
    and get the dizziness and all to accompany it.. NOT nice..

    the Nose bleeds ARE linked to the sinus hun iv the same at the mo

    I do have the same, some nights i do be that bonged up i feel
    nauseas then cus does be that bad and in morning i be that congested i cant catch my breath...

    i was told its all linked to my inner ears, and i get vertigo too when my ears start to annoy me. soooo not nice... never was like this pre-pregnancy.. well never as often used to only happen me when the weather changed considerably now its the entire pregnancy so far xx

    Yeah thats exactly same with me... starts in the cold then makes it worse when you get into the warmth.. then i start feeling like im getting a sore throat but it normally turns out to be heartburn burning my throat and it settles down, espesh as i ate 3 big oranges before :blush: haha :lol: serves me right then!! but vitamin C and all that!! haha

    hope your feeling less congested in the morning sweetie :D xxxxx

    I went to the dr about this as I had it from very early on and was struggling to sleep as my nose was always blocked and my sinuses killed...she prescribed me a nasal spray and although I have literally been living on it, it has really done the trick! x

    Iv had a horrible cold lately and really wanted to get rid of it non-medicinally....

    so my OH went into Boots for me and spoke to the pharmacist and she gave him a natural isotonic nasal spray... its pretty much salt water but MY GOD it works a bloody treat!! Its totally safe and has no chemicals in it but it cleans your head out and feels really good for a stuff nose/head.

    Maybe try this...?

    I am so glad you posted this, I had no idea it was related to pregancy, I just thought I had something permanently hanging about me. It's just my head, constant stuff running down my throat, blocked nose and I can hardly hear out of one ear.

    I have the same problem now :dohh: and especially at night get totally congested and can't breath properly. I have used the saline spray before, but you can also make saltwater at home and wash your nose with a neti pot. I use about one teaspoon sea salt on a cup of warm water in am and pm and it has helped me so much since I started doing it (instead of neti pot which i left back home I am using a similar plastic thing that came with our iron lol).
    You can find instructions on how to use neti pot on internet, may not be pleasant for the first time, but relief that it brings is worth it :).

    Another important thing is that it helps to prevent sinusitis. I was down with it for months last year and never ever want to go there again...

    i get it on and off, no way near as bad as yourself.

    but i feel bunged up and then get a burning sensation at the top of my nose, then i have a pulsing in my ear like my heartbeat. i've been bunged up for the past week and the pulsing started yesterday afternoon and is still there now but that burning at the top of my nose has stopped!

    weird pregnancy tricks our bodys like to play lol
