How can I deal with allergies?

While it is possible to develop allergies during pregnancy, it’s more likely that women who had them before will feel their allergy symptoms worsen. This could be due to the constant hormonal changes that the body goes through as the pregnancy progresses.

As if pregnancy didn’t have enough pesky symptoms, dealing with constant sneezing, coughing and a stuffy nose is very annoying. Before taking any measures it’s important to contact your doctor, especially before taking any medications to control these symptoms. But we have great news – there are some simple home remedies you can try to alleviate these pesky discomforts!


Here are a few ideas:

  • Mix ¼ teaspoon of salt in a cup of warm water. Lean over the sink, take a small bottle or syringe (without a needle, of course), and flush one of your nostrils with this solution while keeping the other one closed. Then, push out the water and repeat the process with the other nostril! Voilà! Clean nose, ready to stop sneezing.
  • For a more relaxing experience, breathe in hot steam in the shower or with the help of a humidifier.
  • For a spa-like touch at home, give yourself a massage on the nasal sinuses and forehead to relieve that congested situation.

Remember, before heading to the pharmacy to get an antihistamine, talk to your doctor! They will guide you to find a solution that is safe for both you and your baby, so you can breathe easy and enjoy your pregnancy.
