In brief: Natural is best
For any medications during pregnancy, please ask your obstetrician.
From my perspective as a boogordoctor, you can't do better than simply rinsing your nose with salt water - saline nasal rinses. Please take a look at my med education blog site, boogordoctor.Com, for articles on rhinitis of pregnancy. Best success! and congratulations!

There are also homeopathic remedies and Chinese herbs you can take while pregnant. The ones on www.franzcenter.com under herbaceuticals are safe during pregnancy, for newborns, children, and adults.

In brief: Plain Mucinex (guaifenesin)
Plain Mucinex (guaifenesin) 600mg twice a day is generally considered safe in pregnancy.
Plain Claritin or zyrtec 10mg is also safe on pregnancy.

saline nasal spray may also help flush the mucus out
