Artificial Intelligence Health Assistant's Answer

It is common to experience cold symptoms and sneezing during pregnancy due to hormonal changes and a weakened immune system. However, there are several steps you can take to alleviate these symptoms. First, make sure to get plenty of rest and stay hydrated by drinking fluids like water, herbal tea, or warm soups. Use saline nasal drops or a saline nasal spray to relieve congestion. You can also try using a humidifier in your bedroom to add moisture to the air and soothe your nasal passages. Over-the-counter medications should be avoided unless prescribed by your healthcare provider, so it's best to consult with them before taking any medication. Additionally, maintaining good hygiene practices such as washing your hands frequently can help prevent the spread of germs that may worsen your symptoms. If your symptoms persist or worsen, it is important to consult with your healthcare provider for further guidance and treatment options specific to your pregnancy.
