hayfever and pregnancy
Mar 9, 2008 9:43AM
Hi just wondered if anyone suffers from Hayfever? I've read that you can't take any thing whilst being pregnant, I am already sneezing and my eyes are running and its only february so think I will be really suffering. I'm 9 weeks!

I was pregnant last year (before mc) and was suffering really bad as i've had hayfever since the age of 9, I asked the mw if i could take anything and she did prescribe me something although i can't remeber the name but it was a crappy one that you had to take every 4 hours which sucks as i'm normally on 10+mg of claritin (spelt wrong). There are herbal tablets also available called New Era you might be able to take them! Well girls heres to another pregnancy lasting throughout hayfever season

Yup i have awful hayfever since i was a baby
im not going to bother taking pills as usually forget anyway, but would the eyedrops be ok do you think?
I've found that since moving to the city it's not half as bad as it used to be though so thats lucky. xxx

Check with your doctor but last time I was pregnant mine gave me a presciption for Piriton which are ok to take. I also use a starch based spray calle Nazalese which doesn't contain any drugs and is totaly safe. I actually found last time round that my hayfever wasn't as bad while I was pregnant so it might not be as bad as you think!

New to the game at 35.
Hello all. My husband just surprised me last week by saying if I wanted to have a baby he is willing to do so. He has 2 kids, 14 and 8, from previous relationships so for the 5 years we've been together it was all "don't want another ". We got married April 1st of this year. I have PCOS so I had accepted life without a baby of my own and have been on BC for most of my adult life. But now he has changed his mind and I am ecstatic and terrified! I threw away my last 4 active pills, which obviously messed up my cycle lol. So here we go to see what we can do. I cant decide if it would be scarier to conceive right away or for it to take a long time (if at all). I am on Metformin for diabetes (very well controlled, a1c of 5.4 last time checked) and I've been taking inositol supps for a while now just to see if they could help with other symptoms. Also started taking prenatal vitamins as preparation. Sorry for my long winded intro, I'm just excited. Thanks for reading if you got this far!
