UGHHH! I feel for you! I had this through my WHOLE pregnancy with my last! And up through my first trimester with this one. Lots of nose bleeds too. Unfortunately, its 'normal' so they say. Good luck with it! I found nothing to be real effective, as I did not take cold medicine because it obviously was not a cold. Hey, I did use a cool mist vaporizer in our bedroom! That helped with the nose bleeds!

The article Kim provided is very clear and to the point! I get horribly stuffy with pregnancy and I have already bought lots of kleenex this time around. I also get bloody noses - which have already started a little bit.

Ahhh ~ the joys of pregnancy. Why can't it be easy and romantic???

Hi Therese,

I found this link about stuffiness in pregnancy. ... /1076.html

I had it, too!

Take care,

I'm sure there is a thread on this somewhere, but I can't find it. I'm 7 weeks along and VERY stuffy. Is it too early for that and could this be allergies instead? It's driving me nuts!
