Mommies help!

I am on my 5th month and still hiding my pregnancy to my parents... But recently I just had allergic rhinitis, every morning and evening lang naman.. But everytime I have it, sneezing exerts too much pressure on my belly then causes painful contractions... I am afraid na baka makunan ako ng maaga... I am afraid naman to ask doctors from our place kasi my sister is a medrep, and she knows a lot of doctor esp OB's...

Do you know what OTC drugs I could buy for my Nasal allergy??

And also for cough, colds, fever.... medyo nagiging sakitin kasi ako this past few weeks... help pls! Though yun lang naman, pls pls pls!!!!

Naka-relate ka ba? Maging member na para makapagpost ng katanungan o payo dito

hi sis, I suggest the best thing you need to do is to admit your pregnancy esp. with your parents.
Hindi safe na tinatago yan lalo na't may sakit ka now, mas ok kung manggagaling sa OB un ite-take mo na gamot.Pray ka lang sis.

Hi!!

I would suggest that you look na for OB na hindi kilala ng sister mo?? kasi when it comes to med's talaga nakakatakot magtake basta-basta lalo't buntis ka. Saka you need to take some vitamins na pangbuntis nadin para mas lumakas na yung resistensya mo at doctor lang yung makakapagbigay sayo nun. kaya mo yan!! goodday!!

Hi Sis,

Meron din ako allergic rhinitis during 1st trimester..
I was advised by my OB just to take paracetamol and high dose of VIT C 2 x 500mg tab per day (Fern C or Cecon)..Drink plenty of water...

P.S. Do not take any Antibiotics or antihistamines without OB's advise/Rx

Thanks for the advise mommies, pero i plan to tell them right after my wedding this coming november 20, kasi mas madali ata sabihin na buntis ako when they are secured na with my civil status (i mean, mas magaan tanggapin yun rather than them today). pero thank you so much! :D

Loratadine (also known as Claritin) is an allergy medication that is considered safe, based on animal studies that have shown no risks to the fetus and no reports of human reproductive problems.
Consult your doctor to weigh the pros and cons of taking Claritin or other allergy drugs, and taking the possible risks to your fetus as a primary consideration.
