cold or allergies

Not sure if I have caught a lil cold or have allergies cause the Chicago weather Change.but I'm a bit nervous because can you actually get a cold while prego and be fine? I do get seasonal allergies which I have symptoms of but Im not sure what to take cause I never had allergies while pregnant before. But im not coughing.  So Im really leaning to the allergies vs.the cold IDK im confused. I can treat a cold but how do I treat allergies?

I suffer from seasonal allergies as well but unfortunately there is nothing that we can do about it cause the medicine that I would normally take is not recommended for pregnancy.

I had a small cold about a month ago and my Dr. Recommended using those Breathe Right nasal strips. I also suffer from seasonal allergies. Just stay hydrated either way and maybe try a humidifier.  It really helped me.
