I know exactly how you're feeling. When I was 8-20 weeks I will vomit atleast 2 or 3 times a day and feel nausea all the time. What really help me ease it out was ginger soda or purified water and salty crackers such as Ritz :)

Try benadryl in case its allergy related and lemon helps with nausea

I know exactly what you mean! I'm 30 weeks n I've been blowing my nose, sneezing n coughing aaaall the time since I was first pregnant. Doctor said its normal but it's soo annoying!

Sorry to say, totally normal. More liquid in ur body in general. Every fluid ur body makes is in overdrive until further notice. Try a bit of a hot shower then coughing it up.

Normal.  Been going through it since the first trimester.  I'm 22 weeks now and I still have the phlegm in my throat that causes me to gag.

Ive got the same , it just stuck at the back of my throat and feels horrible , i went nd saw a throat specialist and they told me basically i have acid reflux , i cant remember the exact name of it , ive had it my entire pregnancy havent been able 2 take any pregno care tablets because i would just throw them up , got the medience but not taking it till after my pregnancy as i dont trust certain tablets while being pregnant lol

Thank you ladies! Will start drinking more liquids. Hopefully it goes away soon because I cannot imagine 22 weeks and still having it lol. By then i might be an expert on getting them out lol

I faced the same issue in 20-25th week. Was not even able to sleep. My doc told its minor signs of sinus, cts, acid reflux Which is normal in pregnancy. I tried gags n honey ginger based syrups.. Nothing that worked. Last tried Throat n wrists n legs massage with hot mustered oil with garlic.. Just in 1-2days my all probs gone like it was never there.
