I had this in my last pregnancy. Now in this one, I sneeze all the time and all the way through pregnancy. It's not just a couple of sneezes either, it's fits of about 10-15 at a time.
Anybody else get this? And WHY????

when you are pregnant, you nasal passages swell up more (just like your other mucous membranes wink), so you are either sneezing to get rid of the stuffy feeling, or the swollen passages are trapping more particles that need to be sneezed out.

I just get the bunged up snotty feeling, although my mild hayfever has gone a bit loopy this summer.

Hey LackaDAISYcal You're on the phil and teds thread! (Vibe is very nice btw) It's weird because I don't even feel bunged up. I just get a sneezing attack. Thanks for the info, makes sense! smile

sneezing during pregnancy is really annoying! I'm 34 weeks now and I pull all my bump muscles when I sneeze, it's painful.

I'm leaking every time I sneeze.......thank goodness I don't do 15 at a time, or I'd have no need to go to the loo blush....and I've still got 10 weeks to go.

Hi FandN smile
