Phlegm... sorry if TMI!

I am 26 weeks gone, and for the past week or so have been waking up wheezing. When I get up and have a hot drink the phlegm starts to come up into my throat and I spend a good hour hacking, trying to get rid.

Does anyone else get this? Is it a pregnancy thing or, as my DH suggested, hayfever? I don't really have any other hayfever-type symptoms though and I'm usually fine after about 10am.

I've had bad phlegm since week 7 and sitll have it. I HATE it and in the last two weeks it has been sticking to the very back of my throat so it ruttles but I can't cough it up. Every morning it makes me so sick. I also get lots of horrible stuff at the top of my nose that won't go up or down.
Sorry I have no cure or wise words, just wanted you to know it isn't hayfever and you're not alone!

Oh me too. It normally accumulates at night which means I'm snoring like a fog horn! I keep waking myself up snorting because it's blocking my throat so I can't breathe. Poor DP having to put up with sleeping along side a grumpy sow!
