Stuffy nose and a sore throat a symptom?

Hi all. Yesterday I had a stuffy nose and a very sore throat. It was gone when I woke up and now, this evening it's back with a vengeance! I was sick a couple of hours ago but I have no idea if that's because my throat is feeling tight (hoping it's pregnancy of course!). I have googled the nose and throat thing and was surprised that a lot of pregnant women have reported it too. I just wanted to know if any of you have had this before/have it now X

Sorry, but no, not for me. I had a stuffy nose much later into my second prrgnancy, but believe this was caused by the narrowing of blood vessels. I didn't have a sore throat. I would attribute your symptoms to a cold.

Of course you could be pg, but don't pin your hopes on these symptoms.

I didn't.

I have three sons already....but I can't remember hardly anything about the tww!! My youngest is almost 5 so it was a long time ago. Well, I'm hoping that this is a sign!! Thank you smile

Hi, I'm also on another thread!

For me AF is due on the 5th and 10dpo today I think. Bfn today.

I also came down with a stuffy nose/sore throat a few days back and have broken out in spots and crying all the time. We are ttc #2 so also know from experience that the only way to know for sure is a bfp!! (Annoyingly)

I'm hoping these are all good signs though! Going to test again Monday.

Good luck!

We have a very similar cycle! I will be testing monday (I think!!). I will be 15dpo then! Well, fingers crossed for both of us. Keep in touch! I really hope this horrid nose/throat is a positive thing! Good luck to you too!!! X

I have stuffy nose at night since ovulation and dry/sore throat last few days as well. I got my BFP a couple of days ago so was a sign for me. Sore throat worse today!

I've had coldy symptoms both times I've got pregnant, from about OV onwards.

Good luck.

Yes, both times I have got a BFP I have felt like I was coming down with something and had a bit of a stuff nose - always around 6/7dpo.

Not due to test until friday or Saturday!! Tested this morning (way too early) and of course bfn!! How are you doing? xx
