My doctor said both Sudafed and Benadryl are OK to take while pregnant. Also you can use Afrin brand nose spray, or any saline nose spray.

I believe with 99% certainty that the only thing that would be considered safe is Benadryl. And I mean the regular benadryl (pink pill) antihistimine. Not the one with sudafed in it.
