Anybody have too much phlegm?

Hi ladies!

I was just wondering if anybody now has too much phlegm/mucus?

TMI...Every morning, I have to spit up and sometimes throw up phlegm and mucus...it comes from my throat and I have to blow my nose. For about 15-20 minutes in the morning and when I am hungry, I spit and gag up the phlegm and mucus.

It is sooo annoying. Does anybody know what causes this and how to stop it?

Lurking from 2nd tri.

I have the same problem and I use the breathe right nasal strips and that seems to help with the stuffy nose. I'm not sure if there is much that can be done, it's just one of those wonderful pregnancy symptoms. Try adding an extra pillow so you are propped up more as you sleep. This should help the mucus drain down your throat into your tummy. It helps me.

Good luck.
