I've just been prescribed Piriton tablets by my gp, think that might be the only one you can have. Have you tried local honey, a spoonful a day is meant to help.

Beconase nasal spray. I took it anyway and my gp continued to prescribe it.

There is an over the counter barrier nasal spray that you can take when pregnant. I think I got boots own brand. I need to go and restock today.

cetirizine and loratadine are both fine.
steroid nasal spray as well, but you might need a prescription as ghe chemist will not sell it to yoh when you are pregnant.

Loratidine is supposedly the first choice and then it is cetitizine
