Blocked nose!!!

So I'm 5 weeks pregnant and for the past year I have had awful nose problems where it will constantly block up and I have to keep using a spray that contains either xylometazoline or oxymetazoline. Since finding out I'm pregnant I've reduced the use of these sprays as much as possible but absolutely nothing works! I've made my own saline nasal spray but again, that doesn't work. Does anyone know of anything I can use at this stage in my pregnancy?? Thank you!

Have you tried a neti pot?

Olbus oil for children. It says not to be used by pregnant women but my doctor said it is fine. Then again, my nose is still blocked and it has been four weeks!
