In brief: Pregnant with URI
Your options will depend on what trimester you are in your pregnancy.
Saline nasal spray or rinses can be quite helpful. Best to speak with your obstetrician.

In brief: Cold
Most doctors consider sudafed the decongestant of choie during pregnancy.
It is pretty safe. Double-check first with your OB doctor before trying any meds. Saline is completely safe. Also, its very common to get very congested during pregnancy due to hormonal factors, etc.

In brief: It depends
In early pregnancy, <12 weeks you are limited to saline washes, benedryl and tylenol (acetaminophen).
After that you can take decongestants, cough medicines and tylenol (acetaminophen). Avoid meds with motrin, Ibuprofen or aspirin.
