In brief: Many choices

First, check with your doctor so he or she will be informed as to what is happening with you.
Generally, Robitussin dm, tylenol (acetaminophen) cold and cough and even sudafed are considerd safe in pregnancy. Use them as directed. In general avoid motrin, aspirin, and nyquil.

In brief: Nasal steroids

Hormonal changes in pregnancy can cause nasal stuffiness even in those who are not allergic.
The most common treatment is an inhaled nasal steroid spray such as fluticasone. Although most brands are pregnancy category "c" (officially not recommended), obstetricians frequently allow them because the dose absorbed by the mother is very small when taken nasally. Ask your doctor.
