Hello, (first post so please be patient with me)!,
I am 8 weeks in and so far the only symptoms I've had have been tiredness, tender breasts and a feeling of nausea every now and then. Over the last few weeks though I have been waking up with lots of cartarrh, to the point of having to bring it up on quite a few mornings. Nothing else, just green cartarrh. Did anyone else have this? I haven't got a cough or stuffy nose, just the mucus part.

Not pleasant but I feel v lucky I haven't had much else yet!

If it is bothering you I'm sure your midwife can advise.
Plenty of fluids and maybe try some saline drops or spray for your nose to help loosen it up.
It's very common to get more congestion and mucus production in pregnancy because of the extra blood and the blood vessels becoming dilated.
If in doubt, though, always seek advice from your midwife or GP.
