Allergies worse during pregnancy?

Hey everybody!! Does anyone notice if their allergies get worse during pregnancy? I have either caught 2 colds in the past month and a half, or my allergies are acting up!!! I've never been properly diagnosed with allergies, so I don't know what they're like. So, just asking!!!!

Re: Allergies worse during pregnancy?

I have definately noticed that mine have gotten worse too. I have never had allergies before, and now they act up all the time. Especially at night. My OB said to take benadryl if they get bad. Maybe that will help. Hope you feel better!

My allergies also got really bad, when I was pregnant. My Dr. told me to ''live with it'' as much as possible, but if they got too bad to take a benadryl and come in to see her. HTH

I thought I was the only one! My allergies definitely got worse when I was pregnant. What I would do is lie down and they would be better after a short nap.

If they were really bad, my doc asked me to take piriton but I hate the way it makes me drowsy!

Mine got HORRIBLE and I took Claritin for them, which my OB said was okay to take. Then one day they just STOPPED. It was really weird but much appreciated.

yes, your allergies can get worse and you can also experience mild or even severe nosebleeds. A humidifier will come in handy to keep your nose from bleeding if you get a lot of stuffy noses.
