    Benadryl or Sudafed to clear the sinuses.

    No - do not take any decongestant tablets or sprays. They should not be taken in pregnancy. I work in pharmacy and I know for definate that most cold/flu remedies are off-limits. Steam inhalation is a very safe and effective way to clear you sinuses, plus the remedies you mentioned - vicks vapour rub and saline nasal spray. If in doubt I'd say speak to the pharmacist first. x
