Allergies during pregnancies

Common Questions and Answers about Allergies during pregnancies


Avatar f tn Ladies please help!!! I've always had super bad allergies and the only thing I've found that works is DayQuil/NyQuil and obviously can't take that being 10 weeks pregnant. I seriously miss being able to breathe! Anyone know of a SAFE and effective allergy/sinus OTC medicine I can take???
Avatar n tn I am 5 weeks pregnant and my allergies are out of control. I ahve an 11 month old and with her I managed on Benadryl for the first trimester but it is just not working this time. I normally take Zyrtec and did so my last pregnancy almost every day after my first trimester. Has anyone else taken antihistimines during the 1st trimester and how did everything go? I do not want to harm the fetus but I know I cannot hold out for the next 7-8 weeks. HELP!
Avatar f tn I took zyrtec during my pregnancies.
Avatar f tn s that silly theory that certain foods ate during pregnancy can cause food allergies....but I ate peanuts of all sorts (especially boiled peanuts, yum!) during both of my previous pregnancies and neither of my kids have food allergies of any sort (well my son reacts a little to the acid in tomatoes and citric fruits but..clearly not peanuts, lol). so eat Petite said, they're GREAT for you!!!
Avatar f tn Is there such a thing as pregnancy allergies? I had this constant sneezing and sinus problem when I was preggo with my son. Didn't have it any other time. Now It's back and is killing me.
1057060 tn?1266513126 It is safe and the only side effect you will feel is becasue of the extra blood flow you can become dizzy some ( for some that is) but it does nto harm the baby. I have used mine during all of my pregnancies but this one as I am not in the area I had bad asthma in. It can be very harmful not to take it. BUt I understand the med thing!!! I would nto take anything but that and only when I needed to. Mine is brought on by allergies though.
Avatar n tn I have the same thing. I never had it with my first two pregnancies but this one i always feel like i have mucous in the back of my throat and feel like i have allergies all the time. And im not sick so it becomes very irritating. It *****!
Avatar f tn Because they are seasonal I would be inclined to think they may be allergen related. I would see a physician that specializes in allergies. I have tons of allergies, some are seasonal and produce headaches. My sinuses react to so many things. Why you seem to get better after a nap is puzzling but it may be because you are removing yourself from whatever is triggering your allergic response. Obviously I am not a physician and I am only basing my response on personal experience.
Avatar f tn Yes Benadryl is safe during pregnancy. Just don't take over the amount posted on the package!
Avatar f tn hi mommies i was just wondering what kind of medication is it safe to take during pregnancy for allergies? .
Avatar f tn I have done a septrum operation but no change. I have visited an ENT recently and was told its allergies, however don't know what I'm allergic too due to visit an allergist soon. However lately I've been feeling tired, light headed at times, blocked nose, dry mouth and wake up during the night out of breath. Do you get these symptoms?
Avatar f tn I was cleared to take zyrtec during my last pregnancy and with this one. Benadryl is ok after the first trimester.
Avatar f tn My allergies are terrible what can I take that isn't harmful to my baby. Runny noise watery eye sneezing every five minutes I'm miserable.
