Lady, have you tried putting a couple of menthol crystals in a bowl of steaming water and breathing the steam? I know its an old fashioned thing but it really does help you breath. Olbas is also good. Can you take paracetamol?
agree - old fashioned steam inhalations are very, very effective. you can dissolve some vicks rub in hot water if you've got it. just the hot steam will help. keep yourself propped up; hot drinks esp. juice will help make your nose run. standard mentholated sweets are also ok. you could also try a hot face-cloth over your forehead and eyes...good luck.
32 weeks myself and know how you feel. My sinuses seem to get really congested in pregnancy. I put Vicks directly onto the skin under my nose. It smarts a bit, but not unpleasantly and lasts until I wake up for the inevitable wee, when I reapply. It also adds to the overall glamourous look of pregnancy.
hi, i'm 38wks and my cold started 5 wks ago. Tried everything but couldn't shift it, now have bronchitis and I'm on antibiotics. If it doesn't clear up in a few days then go and see your doctor. Don't suffer for weeks and allow it to get worse like silly me!
just recovered from dreaded cough cold and sinusitus myself- takes ages to throw off- not sleeping was the worst. Doctor told me to snort warm salt water. Not pleasant but soon got the knack - called nasal irrigation I think. Clears all the stuff at the top and did it just before bed so could breath through nose - luxury ! Odd but effective !
