Yes! Its from the extra mucus you produce which makes your allergies you get worse. I rarely get allergies and when I do it will only last for like 4 days max....with being pregnant I had allergies with a sore throat for a whole week (checked for strep which came back negative) and now im in my second week with it with just extra mucus but no sore throat. I hope this info helps :)

Pregnancy weakens your immune system.  So that's why its better to stay away from sick people & make sure you wash your hands often. & then again there it is pollen season, its all over my car
