Sinus problems headache

I'm 9 weeks and 3 days and today I've had the worst pain in my face my head hurts my nose is all stuffy and stopped up I can't even breath out of my nose the sinus pressure is horrible what has helped you guys with this kinda stuff I've been keeping flonase on me at all times bc I have chronic sinusitis but never had it while pregnant and was wondering what will help or what is something's I could try that is safe and affective ? This is my 5th baby but never had any of this while lregnant with the other 4. Humidifiers usually don't help me for some reason just need more options.

Ugh, sorry you aren't feeling well.  I do get some relief from a steamy hot shower.  It kind of opens me up and then I blow as best I can after.  You can take Tylenol which isn't super great but something.  Too soon for you to take mucinex-- darn it.  That should be avoided until the second trimester.  Try to get some extra rest.  Oh, and have you ever tried a netty pot?  My husband swears by it.  You can get it at any drug store but you do have to do it several times.  Hope you feel better soon!

Oh, that's the worst.  Try the netty pot and see if it helps and let me know.  It stinks to be sick when pregnant for sure!  Oh, and if you start to feel worse, call your doctor.  There are safe antibiotics when pregnant if it moves into the area of bronchitis or sinus infection.  good luck
