A Stuffy Nose

Nasal congestion during pregnancy is quite common, as heightened levels of estrogen and progesterone increase the flow of blood to your body's mucous membranes (including the nose). It also increases your chances of getting a nosebleed, so carry tissues whenever you can!

What You Can Do: Blow your nose frequently but gently. Instead of an over-the-counter nasal spray, which could be harmful to you and your baby, WebMD recommends creating your own saline solution with salt, baking soda, and warm water.
