    I has asthma/ allergies and my nose is now getting seriously blocked at night. I;ve tried drinking more water, window open, window shut and Vicks. Any suggestions? DH keeps complaining about me snoring lol!:growlmad: doesn't go down well I can tell you! :brat:

    I don't have asthma, but i have noticed i have a constant runny/stuffy nose.
    I had it with my other pregnancies as well.
    I don't know the solution, but I know it's not helping my nausea a bit, to have all this sinus drainage running down my throat all the time. :(

    Hopefully it will clear up as the pregnancy progresses.

    I've had this for the past few nights too! My nose is so stuffy it is miserable. I already don't get enough sleep and this make it even harder. Is the Vick's helping you at all??

    My doctor and my pharmacist both told me that I could use a nasal spray for my allergies. I got one called Prevalin in Boots and it specifically says on the side of it that it is suitable for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.

    The purple Halls sweets are good (not the soothers, the square ones).

    I used otrivine nasal spray all through baby #1. It says not to but there's nothing worse than a blocked nose.
