    Hi,

    I had cold during my early pregnancy too. Do not panic and dont take any self medictaion.
    Take steam inhalation and have some soups with pepper in it. This should help.

    During pregnancy, the blood capillaries in your body increase in size to help more better blood flow throughout the body.
    Your nose is one such organ which has so many blood capillaries, and very delicate. As they expand in size, what we get during pregnancy is stuffy nose, blocked nose, runny nose etc.
    This is very common.

    If its a viral infection, i am sure it will be accompanied by fever. If at all in doubt, consult your doctor.

    For the regular runny nose, stuffy nose etc.. you can do steam inhalation. I've also used Vicks inhaler for my blocked nose, which the doctor said is perfectly fine.
