Since the beginning of my 5th week pregnancy, I had so much nasal congestion. I feel all my thick nasal discharges are pooling behind my throat when I wake up in the morning. I have been trying to clear my throat every morning and it seems it doesnt go anywhere. I wait for my husband to be in the shower room when I do this because it is very disgusting and gross to even listen to myself clearing my throat.
Im now 9 weeks pregnant and my nasal congestion isnt going away even thou Ive been drinking lots of fluids. When I swallow my saliva, my throat is so sticky that it seems a phlegm is just sitting on top of my throat and not going down hence I keep clearing my throat over and over that I gag and almost puke my belly out. This has been bothering me a lot. When I sneeze, nothing comes out. I feel I have a very thick slug plugging my throat and I am so uncomfortable.
Am I the only one having this. They say, this has something to do with increasing blood volume. Geez..
