I'm not but my wee lad has it so bad I completely sympathise with you. You can get a nasal blocker cream that you apply just around your nostrils, it really helps him. It's called Nasal Guard.

My doctor prescribed me citizirine throughout my pregnancy as my asthma flairs up badly (one of many symptoms) if my hayfever is not under control. He was concerned that the asthma would be more harmful than any side effects of the antihistamine - however, piriton (or any of the old fashioned drowsy anti histamines) should be able to be taken if you consult your doctor first. I feel your pain - not pregnant but really suffering with hayfever this week....I never look forward to the summer

fern is it ok to use whilst pg? I've never had it this bad before. I'm not sure if it's worse this year or whether it's just because I'm pg

Yes, it's fine as it's drug free.

I've had to give in and take Piriton. I've tried absolutely everything else and nothing was working. I did a lot of research on it and it's safe - just don't take it near the end of your pregnancy. 17.5 weeks and can fully empathise.
