Excessive Nasal Mucus J's Mommy ♥ 2 kids; California 2385 posts

I am almost 20 weeks pregs and I am having an annoying disgusting dilemma, pretty much every day (and its worse when I first wake up) I have excessive mucus in my throat and nose. I am having to constantly clear my throat and blow my nose. I know that its normal to have some congestion during pregnancy but this is too much. I have a doctors appt tmw and will ask about it but I want to know if any of you suffer from this too and what do you do to alleviate the discomfort.

I suffer from it and i'm not pregnant.. i take flonase every day but you can't take that... i'm having surgery on the 4th.. not sure if it'll help but i'm hoping.

try a saline nasal spray in the morning.. it may help clear it out

my ob recommended a sinus rinse or using one of those netty pot things...
I used the sinus rinse in the shower (it is kind of gross to use in the sink) and it worked for like a day...

I just hate that when I wake up and have to clear my throat and most of the time I end up gagging and throwing up.
