It should not: Sneezing should not effect your pregnancy. If you are having allergies you should talk to your doctor. I typically tell my patients that antihistamines like Benadryl (diphenhydramine) and claritan are safe even in early pregnancy.

Sneezing: Continuous sneezing shouldn't cause problems, but sometimes this can put pressure in the pelvis when something called a valsalva movement occurs which may although very unlikely cause bleeding.

No: Excessive sneezing is not a problem with maintaining the pregnancy. Your pregnancy is still very small as is your uterus. The cervix should still be very thick, such that it will not be affected by the pressure put on it with the sneezing. Typically, sneezing is related to allergies or a cold. If this what is causing your sneezing, this is also not harmful to your pregnancy.
