Yes... I had nearly no allergies before I became pregnant. Now I can't breathe :-(... Before this I've only had allergies once in my life and that was because i spent 6hours outside in pollen. The doctor said its because our bodies are pumping more blood than usual and the increase in hormones. it can even cause nose bleeds and runny nose...

Honestly i have the biggest allergy problem in the world lol ican walk outside and start sneezing and dice being pregnant this time (22 weeks) my allergies have been soooo much better! I haven't had to take anything for allergies since becoming pregnant and I used to have to take benedryl at least twice a week!  Everyone is different though!

Benedryl is also a safe medication during pregnancy! Even good for sleep
